Town of Union, NY (WBNG Binghamton) While many men locally, and across the country, participated in No Shave November, some of the men at Traditions at the Glen held out for an extra week.

The Walsh family owns Traditions and lost one of their own, Bob, to complications from prostate cancer last month.

They waited to trim their beards until December 8, Bob's 60th birthday, to help raise more money for the Danielle House.

The Danielle House is a center that houses and counsels families of the seriously ill.

Friends of the Walsh family each raised a dollar for every year of Bob's life, but support quickly surpassed that.

"It all started off with the $60 and it came from a few friends at first," Pete Walsh said. "And then we had to put an online crowd funding website on Indiegogo because there was so much overwhelming support."

Organizers aimed to raise $5,000 through donations and raffles.
