ANNAPOLIS, MD — Gov. Larry Hogan gained national attention for his handling of Maryland’s ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Now, a fundraiser is capitalizing on his reputation.
The National Bobblehead Museum and Hall of Fame unveiled a Hogan figurine on Thursday that raises money for personal protective equipment. The hall of fame is teaming with Protect the Heroes and the 100 Million Mask Challenge to amp up PPE production through the sale of bobbleheads.
“We received several requests to make a bobblehead of Governor Hogan and other governors who have been instrumental in the continued fight against COVID-19,” Phil Sklar, the museum’s co-founder and CEO, said in a press release. “We’re excited to be releasing his bobblehead today.”
Other notable figurines available for purchase include those of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Dr. Anthony Fauci, America’s top infectious disease expert. The effort started in April and has raised more than $275,000,
