Stache Bash 2013

Over the last month, I've been etching beer mugs for an organization called Mustaches for Kids Omaha. Each year they grow mustaches to raise money for a children's organization and this year it is Make-A-Wish. The guys grow their mustaches for a month and raise money along the way. Each week they have checkpoints and get-togethers to raise more money. Last year they raised over $130k and this year's total came in at over $201k!

On Saturday they had their big Stache Bash where they handed out awards. The "growers" came in costume and the whole event was so much fun! Above you can see "Scottish Fury" and "4X Corn" who were nice enough to pose for a picture for me :)

Jesse's brother and his girlfriend Melissa both came with us. I etched mustache pilsner glasses for us to drink from.

I also made mustache necklaces and rings out of acrylic for Melissa and I to wear. They also make great disguises :)

Here are a few pictures of the awards ceremony. You can see some of the fun costumes!

M4K was a great group to work with. I got lots of great feedback from the guys who purchased mugs and I'm looking forward to working with them again next year!

OK, those mustache rings need to be in your shop! (could be in wood...) What a great and fun organization - it looks like some of the Village People showed up! Your mugs look great!

looks like one crazy time! What a lot of money from growing a little bit of hair. I thought they were going to shave their mustaches and give the hair for wigs or something... {:-D
