Shave it for later
On Saturday March 22, the ‘Stache Bash returns to downtown Port Huron.
The fourth annual Blue Water Social Club charity is held at Kate’s Downtown Bakery, and Lynch’s Irish Tavern.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to “The Thin Blue Line,” an organization that financially aids disabled police officers.
It isn’t the cause however that creates all the buzz, but the means to achieve the ends. ‘Stache Bash participants grow out their facial hair while attendants place pledges to shave or save the ‘stache.
The highest bidder gets to choose to let the hair be or shave it off.
“We’re real people trying to do fun cool stuff, which I think makes this accessible to everybody,” said Ryan McInnis the president of the BWSC.
McInnis spoke of a story from a previous year where a former police chief’s mustache of thirty-eight years raised around $500.
If proceeds exceed the set goal, leftovers are poured into various smaller local charities.
