BENEFITING: City of Hope
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2011
Last year my father passed away from esophageal cancer, and my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. I wanted to get involved with doing something to help others affected by cancer. In 2010, I started up an annual "event" that I named Octobeardfest. The purpose is to help raise money that makes a positive impact.
The premise is simple: Guys grow a fresh beard for the month of October to help bring awareness and raise funds. If you already have a beard, you shave it clean on the first day of October. Gals can get their guys to participate.
