La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat is giving an incentive to his employees to contribute to a good cause.

He said he would completely shave his head if 33 percent of City Hall employees contribute to the United Way Foundation.

The employees have until the end of the month to donate.

While there were lots of suggestions of possible incentives, Kabat thought changing up his haircut would be the most fun.

"Pie in the face, I think was one employee's suggestion," said Kabat. "So I thought, 'Well let's just, you know for the mayor, let's do something fun that's a little fun, but not quite to that extreme. I'm hoping my hair grows back. I figured this is something I can do short term."

The 33 percent is equivalent to 165 staff member who would need to contribute for the mayor to shave his head.
