Men have been taking advantage of their opportunity to disregard personal hygiene this month.

Movember, an international foundation dedicated to raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer during the month of November, is back in full swing.

In celebration of Movember, the Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden will be hosting the second annual Moustache Competition of Golden on December 2.

The Moustache Competition will be held at the Riverhouse on the evening of Dec. 2.

“There are two categories in the Moustache Competition this year. We have the regular competition where contestants shave Nov. 1 and grow the best lip caterpillar they can. Then we are going to do a Freestyle category where fellas who have been sporting their face furniture for the past 20 years can enter and take a run for the prize,” Greg Bodnaryk, GLCG member, said.

To enter the competition, contestants can sign up at Off the Wall, DARKSIDE, Riverhouse, the Crooked Antler and Plane Wayne and Jane.

The entrance fee is $20 per contestant with $10 going directly towards the Movember Foundation and $10 going into the prize pot. “Chris Soper, owner of the Riverhouse, will also be matching whatever money is collected of the $20  entrance fees, doubling the donations and prize money.”

Not only will there be prize money, but Soper will also be donating his van.

Wondering how to give yourself an edge and go home with the big bucks?

The competition isn’t just about growing the best ‘stash but selling it as well.

Dress the part, talk the part and walk the part.

If the judges see you owning your moustache, you could be going home with first place.

“Our goal is to expose people to the Movember Foundation. We are hosting the Moustache Comp. to get people on board that otherwise may not have had the opportunity to donate to the Movember Fund,” said Bodnaryk.

For more information on the Moustache Competition of Golden or the GLCG, visit the Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden on facebook.  Drop by the Riverhouse on Dec. 2, to check out what a month without a razor can do.

For those who do not wish to enter but would like to help the cause, donations can be accepted at the businesses listed above.

The GLCG is a brand new non-profit society aimed at building community spirit through events and sports in the Golden area. Fundraising from their events will go back into the community through more events and through supporting income sensitive children in the pursuit of sports and leisure as a positive lifestyle choice.
