Mo-st Mo-gnificent Mo-ustaches for Mo-vember
ALMOST 30 men from James Frizelles Automotive Group in Lismore banded together to make a significant contribution to Movember this month, with a competition for who could grow the best moustache.
With the sheer amount of entrants, and the Frizelles Group agreeing to pay $10 to the cause for every car sold, the total amounted to $1500.
"I think it's a great cause," said Jason Coran, the Service Manager of the Frizelles Group.
"Ideally if we can raise some money and have bit of fun in the interim, that's all the outcome is."
While family members may not have been happy about the new facial hair, the guys made it all the way to the end of the month.
Mr Coran said that his wife and three daughters protested his new mo, and Lawrence Murphy, a sales consultant and winner of the competition, was told by his daughter that she was taking her mum to a school event he was supposed to attend because he kept his moustache.
It's not real flash, Mr Murphy said.
But it was agreed that the cause was worth the criticism.
"It's obviously a good cause that they need to put focus on," Mr Murphy said.
"I think it's awareness, it's also about being able to talk about it and get everyone at least thinking about it," Mr Coran said.
Movember is an annual fundraiser, aims to raise money for prostate cancer and men's health.
