  • Tom Brady shooks hands with Governor Charlie Baker as the two arrived to have their heads shaved

Billed as a "mystery guest", Brady - along with Gov. Charlie Baker and over 1,000 others - participated in the fifth annual "Saving by Shaving" at the Granite Telecommunications offices in Quincy. Most of that money came from Granite Telecommunications, a company in MA that pledged to donate at least $5 million if 1,000 people agreed to shave their heads, and Brady ended up being one of those 1,000.

The Patriots quarterback sat under the shears of barber Pini Swissa today at a charity event to support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

TMZ Sports reported details of the event, which also included MA governor Charlie Baker getting his head shaved to help the cause.

Tom Brady generated a whole lot of buzz for a good cause Thursday. Brady is now scheduled to make an appearance on "Good Morning America" on Monday, followed by a CBS appearance Monday night when he heads to the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert".

This special cause is close to Brady since his mother Gaylnn was diagnosed with Cancer in June 2016.

Afterward, Brady showed off the haircut in an Instagram post.
