Giving up their hair a feather in their caps

Published Oct. 1, 2005

A challenge at a recent gathering of the Friends of the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park led to hairstyle changes for three of the participants.

An audience member offered $500 if local physician Mark Fallows would wear his hair in a mohawk. By the time the bidding was done, local veterinarian Mark Lowe and park manager Tom Linley joined in the fun, getting their heads shaved for the cause.

All totaled, $1,500 was raised for the park's bird of prey exhibit.
