NMB City Manager, Public Safety Director dye hair to help raise funds for Special Olympics

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The City of North Myrtle Beach Department is a little more colorful after they teamed with Krispy Kreme doughnuts to raise over $38,000 to fund the Special Olympics over the weekend.

North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Director Jay Fernandez made a bet with his personnel that, if they raised at least $10,000, he would have his hair dyed Garnett Red, according to a Facebook post from the department.

City Manager Mike Mahaney bet Public Safety that if they raised at least $25,000 for Special Olympics, he would have his hair dyed Clemson orange.

The fundraiser shattered both wagers: Fernandez said they raised over $38,000. On Monday morning, both men had their hair dyed at the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety building. They even streamed the dye jobs live on Facebook, view the video below:
