Boston Celtic and World Champion Al Horford partners with Gillette for his championship shave. Gillette donated $25,000 to Best Buddies in his honor.

While at Gillette, the newly minted champions celebrated with fans, received shaves from barbers including Gillette Barber Council member and owner of Title City Barbers, Josh Pereira and presented donations to three Boston-area nonprofit organizations. The barbers trimmed beards and shaved faces and heads using a variety of Gillette products including GilletteLabs with Exfoliating Bar, Gillette SkinGuard, and King C. Gillette, to get the players looking and feeling their best.

“At Gillette, it’s a long-standing tradition to commemorate a Boston championship with a championship shave, saved for celebrating the accomplishments of the best in their league with the best a man can get,” said Mariana McQuattie, Senior Vice President of Grooming for Gillette North America, “It’s an honor to be able to celebrate some our hometown’s newest champions, Derrick, Al and Payton, and have the opportunity to give back to our community at the same time.”

Gillette donated $25,000 on behalf of each player to a local nonprofit of their choice – Special Olympics MassachusettsEdgerley Family South Boston Boys & Girls Club and Best Buddies. These organizations were recognized by the players and Gillette for the work they undertake daily to make a positive difference in the lives of Boston residents and beyond.
