QUINCY, Mass. (AP) - Gov. Charlie Baker is about to lose his locks again.

The Republican will get a buzz cut on Tuesday to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Baker will join Democratic Quincy Mayor Tom Koch and Energy Affairs Secretary Matt Beaton in having their heads shorn.

The event is hosted by Granite Telecommunications.

Last year Baker and Koch joined 550 Granite employees who shaved their heads or beards. The group raised more than $3.2 million for Dana-Farber and donated their hair to Locks of Love, a nonprofit that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada suffering from long-term medical hair loss.

Dropkick Murphys bassist Ken Casey will also get a buzz cut at the 10 a.m. event at Granite Telecommunications in Quincy.
