One of the rules of the campaign is that each "Mo Bro" must be clean shaven on November 1st.
Lido Theatre manager Byron Stewart and Fort St. John Movember organizer Neil Evans kicked off the festivities by ridding fully bearded Tyson Mowat of Trimtek Custom Signs and Devon Wigglesworth of Patch Java of their scruff. Even Councillor Bruce Christensen lost his duster.
This year, Fort St. John fundraising teams are hoping to beat last year's total of over $27,000.
Many local businesses are doing their part to raise money for prostate cancer research. Marc Joseph clothing store is donating a dollar from every purchase, and both Patch Java locations will donate 10 per cent of every purchase made by someone participating in Movember.
Every Tuesday in November, Remedies Lounge is hosting a Movember Poker Tourney at 7:00 p.m.
On Thursday, November 17, Northwoods Pizza will be donating $5 from each pizza sold from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5 p.m.-close.
On Wednesday, November 23, Egan's Pub is holding a "Mo'pen" Mic night.
On Saturday, November 26, Looney Tunes is hosting its Movember party starting at 9:00 p.m. Prizes will be given out for Best Costume and Best Moustache Combo.
To finish it all off, the Official Movember Wrap-Up Party is taking place on November 30 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lido Theatre.
