All proceeds will be donated to the Movember Foundation.

Last year's event completely sold out, and the organizers were able to raise over $3,000 for their cause. Each year the Movember Foundation challenges men across the globe to grow moustaches for the month of November to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues.  Since 2003 Movember has empowered millions of men and women to join the global men's health movement.  Through the moustaches grown, the connections created and the conversations generated, Movember has raised over $710 million and helped fund over 1,000 breakthrough men's health programs in 21 countries.  This year Movember is concentrating on attacking prostate and testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity.
