Sherburne History Center Executive Director Mike Brubaker could end up bald, or with purple hair, depending on the outcome of a spring fundraiser for the organization.

If donations to the history center between April 15 and May 15 top $3,000, Brubaker will shave his head. If donations hit $5,000, he will bleach his hair white and then dye it purple. He will shave it off after it grows out.

“It sounds silly. It’s designed to be a lot of fun,” Brubaker said.

To donate, send a check made out to the Sherburne County Historical Society and mail it to Sherburne History Center, 10775 27th Ave. SE, Becker, MN 55308, or donate via PayPal at Or, call 763-262-4433 to get more information.

This is one of the organization’s fundraisers. Brubaker said they are tasked with raising about $90,000 a year.
