Mo' Staches Mo' Money
By: Mo Sista Julia Falk, Digital Marketing Published:
Over the past seven years, Harpoon has held November (when Harpoon’s annual moustache competition takes place) as one of the most anticipated and celebrated months at the brewery. The rules of our competition have changed slightly (we’ve joined forces with Movember the last 2 years) but the goal has remained the same – to raise money and awareness for men’s health! Whether Harpooners had been growing a beard all year long or started rocking the stache November 1, we recently all came together to celebrate the beauty that is the stache.
Over a few pints, we oohed and awed over some pretty epic staches. And to add to the excitement, Ed Valenta, a member of our production team, offered to shave his entire head if $200 was raised the night of the party. And thanks to patrons of the Beer Hall and our own team members, we raised over $200 and shaved Ed’s head on the spot!
A big thank you to everyone who donated and to all of the Harpooner’s who put their facial hair where their mouth is (wait a second?) for such an important cause. We are proud to announce that we’ve raised $7,035 for men’s health this month!
