Mustaches for Kids Ottawa

12 Years of Growing Mustaches and Raising Money for Make-a-Wish

A fantastic end to a very stachely year

December 12th, 2013 by Brett Tackaberry



big thank you to all who grew for M4K and contributed to its success. We’ve raised $24,000 for Make-a-Wish EO and its going to go a long way to enriching the lives of the Make-a-Wish children. We had a lot of money still trickling in after the finale on Friday which really added a lot to the bottom line. It was a really great year.

A few thank yous: Trevor Kealey and Mike Hollingworth (co-organizers and co-founders), Paul Townsend (di and co-founder), John Kealey (photographer), Craig McCallion (videographer), Melissa Cowell (tshirt and poster design), Capital Printers (t-shirt production). Thanks for helping out.

A big thanks to the Kivuto team. Together they raised close to $5,000 including a top-up from the company. Looking forward to having them back next year.

And what about the Stache Bash? Well, it was ridiculous but as always – it was a blast. Great costumes, good fun, lots of laughs.
