The Bearded Villains of Southern Indiana coming together this weekend for their 3rd annual battle of the beards. The group comes together every year to raise money for the Gresham House, a local veteran's charity. The groups goal for this year was to raise more than $10,000 dollars for the organization, "Many of us, including myself, are veterans, and we're very proud of what Gresham House does. Not only do they just provide housing, but they also get veterans back on their feet moving forward," said Christopher Hile with American Legion Post 44 in Newburgh.
The group held ten different beard competitions based on different lengths of beard and styles of facial hair. There was also a competition for women and children to design the best beard along with a silent auction.
