Note: During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. If you’d like to help the Illegal Curve team as we raise money ($4,769.00 as of this AM) and awareness you are welcome to do so; Dave, Ezra, Drew, #5 Mark Stuart and #44 Zach Bogosian.
Tonight is the gala party at The Pyramid Cabaret! They are celebrating this year’s Movember campaign and the great effort all you Mo Bros and Sistas put into raising money and awareness for men’s health!
