Anchor House Executive Director Deb Bedwell also has raised $2,600 to bring the fundraising total to $5,935.
The goal is for each candidate to raise at least $1,000, so the fundraiser is expected to bring in more than $13,000.
Since Bedwell exceeded her goal of $2,000, she will have her head shaved at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 6 during Seymour Oktoberfest on the south stage along Chestnut Street.
Of the other 11 candidates, the one who raises the most money will have his or her head shaved, too.
People can donate online by visiting anchorhouseshelter.org, clicking on the “Donate” button, typing in the amount and putting the candidate’s name in the notes. Donations also may be dropped off at Anchor House, 250 S. Vine St., Seymour, or mailed to P.O. Box 765, Seymour, IN 47274.
