Two moustache related charity events this weekend

It’s December 1st, and the annual movement to change the face of men’s health – Movember – is pretty much over. The Baltimore area truly rocked the ‘stache this year, nabbed itself a feature in the Baltimore Sun, TV interviews, and raised over $14,000 (and counting) for a great cause.

But the month is over, and it is time to bid adieu to said ‘staches. And so, this Friday at Field House (2400 Boston St., Canton) marks the Goodbye Stache Bash, here’s the release from team Patapsco High School’s leader, Ryan W:

Good afternoon Patriots,

On behalf of the Mo Bros, I would like to thank you all for your support throughout the entire month of Movember and especially during our Big Finish on Tuesday. What started out as a funny idea really grew into a month-long celebration of not only mustaches, but also the great community we have here at Patapsco. As a result of your help and support, we as a school were able to raise awareness about men’s health issues and over $4,700 towards cancer research!
In order to stretch out the celebration for just a few more days, we would like to invite you all to our “Goodbye Stache Bash” at the Field House in Canton to help us send off our creepy ‘mos the right way. In exchange for a donation *of any amount* you will receive a wristband that will get you great food and drink specials starting at 3:00 tomorrow. The bar is located on Boston St. and there is plenty of free parking available in the lot and the garage.

Again, thank you all so much for your support, we truly could not have done this without you. Hope to see you on Friday!

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!

Another highly well known and moustache related charity, Mustaches for Kids – whose primary target for raising funds is aimed squarely at Baltimore City schools, is having an event of their own on Saturday, December 3rd at PBR Baltimore (34 Market Pl., Downtown) from 6-9pm:

Come out and support the brave volunteer mustache growers of Mustaches for Kids as they compete for the title of “Sweetest Stache” during the 4th annual Stache Bash, Baltimore’s famous (mustachioed) mock beauty pageant! You will never witness a funnier night for such a great cause – proceeds benefit Baltimore City Schools. Since 2008, Mustaches for Kids Baltimore has raised over $80,000 for local Baltimore classrooms. Ages 21+. $5 suggested donation per person.

Great stuff. The ‘stache is truly powerful, that fact cannot be denied. If you’ve got a ‘stache story to tell about this year’s Movember/Mustaches for Kids, leave it in the comments!

    I’ll be at the Goodbye Stache Bash. Honestly, can’t wait to shave this thing off. It’s all prickly and makes me look molest-y.
