For dudes who aren't into shaving, this is maybe the best month of the year. The chance to grow an epic stache -- all for an excellent cause. Oh Movember, how we've missed your wild whiskers.
To date, Movember participants have raised $559 million for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Four million moustaches have grown worldwide, and more upper lip fuzz is sprouting up every day.
To celebrate this monumental month, here's what's happening in South Florida.
The event kicks off at 7 a.m. at the Grand Palms Resort. Interested attendees should call organizer Lucas Cohen at 954-562-6881.
