Thousands of men and several brave women(!) have been growing and grooming their staches all this month in a massive fundraising effort that’s come to be known globally as Movember.

Proceeds from this noble effort help in the fight against men’s prostate cancer through awareness and research. So far this month, over $64 million dollars worldwide has been raised, including Canada’s over $24 million dollar effort. Canadians can stand proud as they’re in the top position of all participating countries!

Here are two events that will celebrate losing all that pretty facial hair. Both are in the city and have RSVP attached to them. As well, both events will take donations and raise funds for the cause. Don’t sit on the fence with these; last I checked there were only 17 tickets (free) remaining for the Five Point’s Stacheoff 2 event (event hashtag: #STACHEOFF5PT).

The Five Point Restaurant event is a tweeup of tweetups, with a competition for BEST STACHE of the night. Take home a great prize. FEMMESTACHE (real and fake) will also be counted towards a prize in the female category.

The Five Point
Venue: 3124 Main Street, Vancouver
Date: Monday, Movember 28
Time: 6 to 8 pm

Free shot to the first 10 in the door who show a tweet with the above hashtag.
