One of the Magic lost one of their most distinctive features on Tuesday. Kyle O’Quinn’s beard was turned to stubble.
O’Quinn’s beard went to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida. There it met a shaver wielded by 10-year-old Jalen White, a little brother with the organization. More than 70 percent of children waiting for a Big Brother are boys.
O’Quinn sacrificed his beard to raise awareness for the cause. Men who sign up until September will be O’Quinn’s guest at a Magic game and receive an on-court photo with him.
