Garner gets the snip for charity

Vancouver law firm Alexander Holburn Beaudin & Lang LLP is a big supporter of the United Way and this year raised $32,018.77, surpassing its $30,000 goal.

Managing partner David Garner put his money where his hair was and promised to shear off his “infamous” ponytail if members of the firm ponied up $10,000. That they did and Garner’s snip actually brought in $10,924 toward the firm's pledge drive.
