Spring is here, and the governor is shorn.
Governor Charlie Baker, for the second year in a row, has had his head shaved for charity at Granite Communications in Quincy.
Granite’s “Saving by Shaving” event raises money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Locks of Love, which provides hairpieces to children suffering long-term medical hair loss.
Other shavees joining Baker on Tuesday included energy and environmental affairs secretary Matt Beaton, Quincy Mayor Tom Koch, Dropkick Murphys frontman Ken Casey, WGBH radio host Jim Braude, and WAAF radio host Greg Hill.
More than 700 Granite employees shaved their heads and beards, too, many donating the hair itself to Locks of Love.
Granite donates $5,000 for each person who gets a shave and $50,000 per person for special guests like the governor.
