Grow a 'Stache and raise money for Community Servings!
It’s time to use your upper-lip for something good! Have you aspired to grow a Tom Selleck ‘stache? Caught yourself daydreaming about Burt Reynolds soup strainer? While we support that, we want to encourage you to become your own ‘stache icon by cultivating some facial hair for a great cause: Community Servings! For our fourth annual Sponsor My ‘Stache mustache growing fundraiser, start off clean shaven on February 1stand let your upper-lip do what it does best while you solicit donations from friends, families, coworkers and mustache enthusiasts.
Community Servings is a meal delivery and nutrition program that provides free, medically-tailored meals for people with critical and chronic illnesses and their caregivers and dependent children. We feed to 775 people a day and currently care for clients with 35 different life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, MS, Lou Gehrigs and HIV/AIDS. Last year our Sponsor My ‘Stache event raised a record breaking $35,000, which allowed us to feed hundreds of neighbors who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Join us this year and help us raise even more!
Why you ask? As a grower you will:
- Be featured on our website as a grower where people can see your progress and support you!
- Get to show off your hard work at our Mustachio Bashio on March 6 at the Lenox Hotel where you could win some amazing prizes when Jenny Johnson of NECN picks the winners for the nicest (and skimpiest) ‘stache.
- Get a complimentary hot shave from Barbershop Deluxe
We would love to have your ‘staches support this year so we can continue to feed our-critically ill neighbors. For more information on the event head to www.servings.org/mustachio!
