We are pleased to share the below story from today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution. And a special thanks to Mustaches for Kids and everyone who participated in last Friday’s event!
The Atlanta chapter of Mustaches for Kids pulled out all the stops at the Stache Bash on Friday to boost its fund-raising efforts.
The charitable group of guys went into Manuel’s Tavern with thick mustaches —- but only $900 in hand. But after a party that featured a wet mustache contest (determining which ‘stache could retain the most beer foam), a mustache beauty pageant (with men in swim trunks and other provocative attire) and even a ‘stache tug of war (involving binders and dental floss), by Monday the group had raised $10,937 for the Atlanta-based CURE Childhood Cancer, according to spokesman Ryan Carrabine.
“It was awesome,” said Tim Whelan, one of the organizers of the event and first runner-up to the man Stache Bash judges declared “king stache,” Robert Watkins. “Everyone brought their ‘A game’ and found their ‘stache persona.”
