Steelers' Keisel to shave beard for charity

Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel drew attention as much -- if not more -- for his full growth of beard as he did his play this season. He will shave it off as part of a charity event for Children's Hospital.

Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel will finally shave his beard on Feb. 24 at an event to raise funds for UPMC's Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

Keisel will be shaved by celebrity barbers beginning at 7 p.m at the Diesel Club Lounge, 1601 East Carson St. He has said he decided to let his beard and hair grow at the Steelers' minicamp in late spring to change the team's luck after it missed the playoffs last season.

Doors will open at 6 p.m.. Food and door prizes will be included. Tickets are available for a $25 donation to Children's Hospital and can be ordered by visiting http://www.showclix.com/event/shearthebeard .
