EDMOND, Oklahoma -

They started growing beards in January and on Saturday, March 16, a group of men in Edmond are a lot less hairy.

The guys have been using their facial hair to raise money for a couple who is in the process of adopting a child and their hard work paid off netting more than $10,000 for the couple.

Before Saturday, approximately $4.600 had been donated to the cause via the Beard for the Blanchards website. Now, thanks to a silent auction, bake sale and other donations, over $6,000 poured into the fun and now Will and Amy Blanchard have over $10,000 toward adopting their very own bundle of joy.

The biggest money getter in the silent auction was the shot gun signed by Jase Robertson of A&E's "Duck Dynasty" for $601.

All money that has been raised will go to the Blanchards. Anything left over will be donated to the Touch of Life Foundation.
