Big Weather named honorary "More-head" citizen
RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- When Big Weather Don Schwenneker went under the clippers this week to show his support for bone marrow donation, it got the notice of Morehead City Mayor Jerry Jones.
"More-head" City is home to the annual Bald is Beautiful convention - so naturally, now that Big Weather is sporting a chrome dome, he's a perfect fit.
In a proclamation issued this week, Mayor Jones named Schwenneker an honorary citizen for his support of the battle against cancer and commended him for his "action of bravery."
Big Weather agreed to have his head shaved if more than 250 people registered at Friday's ABC 11 Be The Match Bone Marrow donor drive.
We're proud to report 275 signed up. It's not too late if you'd like to register to be a bone marrow donor. Click here to register with Be The Match.
The annual Bald is Beautiful convention is held every September in Morehead City. It's put on by the Bald Headed Men of America organization.
