On Saturday, Nov. 24 at 8:00 pm, Kochanski’s Concertina Beer Hall (1920 S 37th Street) will host the 2nd Annual Moustachio Bashio to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues with an emphasis on prostate and male cancer initiatives.

The event is a collaboration between business owner Andy Kochanski and a local Movember team the Stachitects and Engibeards which is comprised of local architectural designers and friends.

Movember, celebrated in the month of November, is dedicated to growing moustaches to raise awareness and vital funds for men’s health worldwide to address prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. To date, the movement has raised over $299,000,000 globally and registered more than 1.9 million participants around the world. Between November 1st and 30th, participants grow out their sponsored mustaches to raise awareness and inspire discussion.
