Calling all moustaches that are involved in the local Dare to Flash A ’Stache campaign to raise awareness and money for Porstate Cancer in November….the time is almost here.
This Saturday night, November 29, the campaign will come to an exciting close, with the removal of some ’Staches, a silent auction and three fun and exciting games of hockey at the Winchester Arena.
The evening fun will kick off at 7 p.m. with a hockey game between the South Dundas and North Dundas Ladies.
Game two will be between the old Winchester Hawks and those old Morrisburg Lions Alumni who have crept up over the 35 year category.
Then the younguns will take to the ice in the under 35 year Hawks versus Lions match.
The local Flash A ’Stache campaign will benefit the Cancer Care Navigation Program at Winchester District Memorial Hospital, improving the experience for those diagnosed and affected by cancer; and Dr. Anthony Bella’s Men’s Health Research Project, for for improving quality of life for men following prostate cancer treatment.
There are so many men and families affected by Prostate cancer and the Movember Dare to Flash A’ Stache has been a hugely successful initiative to bring awareness to it.
