What do you get when you combine legendary Mo Bros, an NYC skyline and a dedicated community dressed to the nines? An epic event known to New Yorkers as the Mustachio Bashio that raised over $10,000 for Movember in 2019. Spearheaded by the fearless leaders of team Macho Macho, Cole McCormack and Jack Hasselmann, the Mustachio Bashio took place on a NYC Rooftop and had over 250 attendees.

“We couldn't have executed such an amazing event without our sponsors, entertainers, donors, hosts, and most importantly support from our friends and family. We have been getting non-stop texts and call about the event and Jack and I hope to make this an annual fundraising party” exclaims Cole.

Cole and Jack are both veteran Mo Bros with a passion that goes beyond just a moustache or a party. Cole’s participation in Movember is personal. He raises funds each year in honor of multiple family members who have been touched by cancer, most recently his father, a prostate cancer survivor.

“Since prostate cancer runs in my family, I am more likely to get it as well, which is a scary thought. I’m grateful for the work Movember is doing in the prostate cancer space so future generations won’t have to go through what our family did” says Cole.

“Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence” Jack, an advocate to change the stigma around mental health, states. “When we first started talking about the idea of Mustachio Bashio, we knew we had to create something that not only would raise much needed funds for Movember, but would also provide the opportunity to bring together the community and start conversations all while spreading awareness for men’s health.”

Cole and Jack’s passion and dedication to Movember shows not only in how they bring together an amazing community, but the funds raised speaks volumes of their supporters. In addition to the funds raised at Mustachio Bashio, team Macho Macho has raised over $14,000 this year, making an overall impact of $25,000 and counting, just in 2019.
