Mario Batali Auctions Off His Ponytail

January 10, 2012

Mario Batali is finally getting rid of his ponytail! The celebrity chef is auctioning off his locks for charity. 

Along with Food & Wine and other chefs like Jose Andres, Cat Cora and Emeril Lagasse, Batali's auction is to help launch Chefs Make Change (CMC). Each chef involved with CMC is fundraising for a specific charity. Batali is hoping to raise money for his own foundation, the Mario Batali Foundation, a charity to help educate and feed children in need. 

In part with the auction, Batali has agreed to chop off his long hair if the CMC can raise $500,000 by February 7.
