Like many others, you may be celebrating that today is the first day of December. Thanksgiving has come and gone and now the holiday bustle really picks up speed.
With everyone looking forward to the excitement of the next 31 days, here at Bury+Partners we’re taking time to look back at a charitable cause many of our staff supported in the month of November.
What was once simply “No Shave November” has turned into a global movement to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. Men pledged to grow out their facial hair, mustaches in particular, to celebrate “Movember,” and together they played a part in “changing the face of men’s health.” MoSistas also joined local teams, supporting the men in their lives and raising money right alongside them.
Last year, the organization as a whole raised $7.5 Million for men’s health research and education, and this year the Austin MoBros raised more than $1,800. The month-long fundraiser culminates this evening with Gala events around the world. Movember will continue to accept donations through the end of December, so there’s still time to donate to the Austin MoBros.
Our MoBros included Bobak Tehrany, Charlie Brown Lohr, Jason Roberts, Kelley Fowler, Donald Cecil, Micah Ater, Tom Caponi, Kenny Wayne Azzarello, Andrew Marshke, Daniel Mahoney and Steve Burtke (not all pictured above). A few Bury and HS&A women participated as well, including Kristin Kibling, Debbie Newell and Stasi Vance.
During the company Thanksgiving luncheon, the guys got a surprise when some of the Bury women showed up sporting their own (fake) moustaches.
Congratulations on a fun and successful Movember, everyone!
