Drop that razor — “Movember” starts now.
For the month of November, the St. John’s Hospital Foundation is encouraging anyone who can grow a mustache to do so. Mustaches for Men’s Health is a monthlong foundation initiative to raise money for its men’s health fund that was started last year.
The men of the foundation have entered into a playful ’stache-off with folks from the Teton County Sheriff’s Department, Teton County School District No. 1, Teton Science Schools and the town of Jackson to see who can grow the best lip toupee and raise the most money.
If you thought, “Wait a second — I can grow a pretty good ’stache,” you’re in luck. The foundation is welcoming community members who want to get a team together to grow facial hair and raise money. Head to the foundation’s site, grab a couple of co-workers, ask your people for donations and fork over the money at the end of the month.
After it’s all said and grown, the foundation will host an awards party from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Wellness Flex Space at St. John’s Medical Center, where the best mouth brow will be crowned and the highest fundraiser will receive a $250 gift card to a local grocery store.
