BENEFITING: Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
EVENT DATE: Dec 11, 2010
We wondered about them for years. We were curious.... yet frightened. We always wanted to know what it would be like, but the reality of making it happen seemed unlikely. Yes... we’re talking about Mustaches. Then it happened. A couple of friends from Long Island looking to raise some money for a good cause came upon an organization called Mustaches For Kids. An organization that told us hey... you’re mustache probably won’t look like Tom Selleck’s. In fact, it’s a lot more likely to look like that little old lady’s down the street - and that’s ok. Just like that the fear was gone. This was it - Grow Mustaches and Donate Money to a charity that’s going to help children. We’re having a good time and raising money for a good cause all at once. All the money we raise will be donated to the Pediatric Free Care Fund at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. This fund helps families who are having trouble paying for their children’s cancer treatment. There’s an English proverb that says “A man without a mustache is like a cup of tea without sugar.” Just as sugar sweetens the tea, so do the mustaches sweeten our lives and hopefully, the lives of those around us.
