Rick Doucette, Executive Director of Teen and Camp Services with the Cape Ann YMCA, sits still while having his hair, beard, mustache and eyebrows died neon blue on Monday at the YMCA Teen Center in Gloucester. Doucette had promised to dye his beard blue if the YMCA Teen Leaders Club collected 7,500 cans in the 20th annual Rock-A-Thon food drive, and his also his hair and eybrows if they collected 10,000 cans. In the end, the group collected 10,324 cans for donation to The Open Door food pantry and the St. Vincent De Paul Society. So on Monday, Doucette followed through on his promise. He says he will keep the color for at least a week.
