PETER AND THE STARCATCHER Celebrates Movember in Support of Sean Kimberling Testicular Cancer Foundation
The producers of Peter and the Starcatcher have announced a partnership with The Sean Kimberling Testicular Cancer Foundation, to celebrate Movember, the global charity that raises funds and awareness to combat prostate cancer and mental health challenges. Movember, which invites men to join the movement by growing a moustache for the 30-days of November, is a charity movement especially close to the heart of Peter and the Starcatcher's own mustachioed pirate, Black Stache, who rightly claims "the 'stache is on everyone's lips...."
Fans of Peter and the Starcatcher are invited to join the show's official Movember team, which can be found at MoBro.co/starcatcherbway. They can also participate in various activities and contests throughout the month on social media, including Moustache Mondays, Whiskers Tip Wednesdays, and Stache Yourself Saturdays. See www.facebook.com/StarcatcherBway for more details on Peter and the Starcatcher's "Month of the Moustachio."
About Movember: During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo's, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Once registered at www.movember.com, men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
