The Houston Dynamo and Dynamo Charities have come together for the fifth year to support Curing Children's Cancer Fund though Bald is Beautiful. This year, Will Bruin and Michael Chabala will be leading the bareheaded fundraising to help a good cause.

Kicking things off will be A Celebrity Pour on August 13 hosted by Dynamo Charities at The Dogwood Bar. At this event, the drinks will flow and heads will be shaved. Starting at 2 pm, patients from area hospitals will be taking clippers to players like Bobby Boswell, Will Bruin, Brad Davis, Andrew Driver, Tally Hall and Cam Weaver. It's not only players will be going bald: goalkeeper coach Tim Hanley will find himself needing a little extra sunscreen up top by the end of the event. Once sufficiently bald around 4 pm, the players will be tending bar. There will also be a silent auction, and the profits of both the auction and the drink sales will benefit Bald is Beautiful.

On August 17 the team will face the Sounders at BBVA Compass Stadium, but before the game Dynamo Charities will be working to break the Guinness World Record for the most heads shaved in an hour. The current record stands at 318 and Dynamo fans will be hoping to annihilate that mark. The shaving will be happening at the Dynamo Soccer Fest from 6:30pm to 7:30 pm. Fans can register for just $10 and be a part of another record that the Dynamo will be shattering.

So why not go get your head shaved? After all, it's hot in Houston this time of year.
