McCook, Nebraska—Community Hospital cancer patients will benefit from proceeds of a fun beard contest among MNB bank employees. The hairy challenge raised $600 for the hospital’s cancer services. Seven contestants entered the contest by paying a fee with five of them growing their beards from November to December 11 when the judging was held. Bank employees cast their votes by paying $5.
