Movember Gala Parte Los Angeles

Avalon Hollywood, December 3, 2010

My regular readers certainly know that I was a participant in the Movember Foundation’s campaign last month to raise funds for and awareness of men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. Since I had 40 years of facial hair, I started off by having a fundraiser to get me to shave it all off. In about 45 hours my goal of $1,000 was met and I shaved it all for Movember. Beginning November 1, I started growing the moustache back.

As a thank you to all the participants, gala partes are being held around the world. These photos are from last night’s event in Hollywood at the Avalon.

Video of my Movember Shave

The month of November has been designated by The Movember Foundation as the month for raising funds for and awareness of men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. As part of the month-long campaign, men around the world are being encouraged to grow a moustache for the month. As you know, I already had a beard and moustache (for 39 years), but I wanted to participate. After talking to a couple friends, I decided to set up a Movember account then announce on Facebook, a few of my sites and some industry forums that when I had $1,000 in donations I would completely shave off my existing beard and moustache.

45 hours later the money was raised. This video is of the removal of my beard and moustache. This is the first time I have not had facial hair since 1971!

All donations continue to be welcomed and appreciated. Please visit for more details.
