Movember 2008: Success!

1 Dec

Hi Guys.  This last Saturday was our First attempt at a Movember Mo-Town Mustache Party at Rubber Gloves in Denton Texas.  We Raised almost $600 that evening, putting our grand total for the month over $1,000!!!!  This is sooo exciting for me and everyone that was involved should be as thrilled as I am.  We’ve done a really good thing and we’ve managed to have a good time, like we usually do, along the way.

If you missed the festivities on Saturday, I kinda feel bad for you.  Performances by Bangs, Yeah Def, SHVRZ and It’s What We Get kept us entertained all night.

The actual Pageant itself was quite entertaining.  Some really good looking (and some not as good looking,) Mo’s graced the stage but not all could be crowned “Mo Of The Year.”  The judges whittled down the competitors down until Three remained:  Ian Bangs, Weston “Fingers” Finney and Dr. Colin Jardine.

After awardine Ian Bangs witn the 3rd place Movember Goblet/Coffee Mug it was down to 2 last staches.  Unbeknownst to a room full of captivated mustache spectators they were about to witness a Tie Breaker for the Titans!  Yes!  Dr. Colin Jardine and Weston “Fingers” Finney tied for first but if there’s one thing we like more than winners, it’s losers, and someone had to lose!  The tie breaker lying before our 2 last contestants would change their night FOREVER!  The first contestant to chug an entire pint of Miller Light would be named the Firts Anual Rubber Gloves Movember Man of the Year!

Colin ended up beating the pants off Weston, but both were rewarded for their efforts and their dedication this month in raising awareness and profits for mens health.

I personally could not have made this event happen without the help of so many people.  Our sponsors: Centre, Matrimoney Clothing, Luke Lanter, Gordon and the Whale, Movember and the Prostate Cancer Foundation, we thank you so much for contributing your time, products and help.
