DENTON — Head Mean Green men's basketball coach Grant McCasland
attended the North Texas Giving Day on the Denton Square Thursday afternoon.
The North Texas Giving Day Denton featured dozens of non-profits on the square that had games and raffles, and gave people a chance to learn about all of the agencies in Denton County working towards creating a more healthy and more humane community.
One of the attractions during the North Texas Giving Day was the inaugural "Beard For Cause", which was a beard pageant held on the square. While the overall Giving Day event was free for the public, proceeds from entering the contest funded the Denton Chapter. One of the local celebrity judges of the beard pageant was McCasland.
Thursday's beard pageant was a unique opportunity for community members to interact with the represented non-profits of Denton County.
"To see all these people out here giving up their time for great causes is not only fun to be a part of but it's inspiring," McCasland said.
