Nash Stache Bash Celebrates Successful Movember

To celebrate raising over $875 to fight prostate cancer, Team Nash Stache is throwing a party at The Big Bang tonight. The team, headed by Kieran Cloonan, raised the money by growing mustaches in Movember (the month formerly known as November) as part of the worldwide event.

Movember is operated by an Australian-based, nonprofit, charitable organization that creates awareness around men's health issues and raises funds for carefully selected beneficiary partners in each country, with a focus on prostate cancer. Movember's beneficiary partner in the United States is the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF), the world's largest philanthropic source of support for prostate cancer.

As team captain, Kieran recruited eleven brave Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to grow mustaches and/or solicit donations. Team members have posted photos of their mustache-growing progress on their Movember blog pages. According to Kieran, the party tonight is an opportunity to "celebrate the end of Movember, have some drinks, take lots of pictures, and hand out a few prizes."

The party is open to everyone, especially those who have donated to the cause (and it's not too late: donations are being accepted through Dec. 9).

RSVP via the Facebook event and join us tonight from 5:30 pm until whenever at The Big Bang on Broadway.
