Well, it long enough, but we finally have a final tally of money raised for the MACC Fund during our Mustache March campaign. Drum roll, please...
$5,964! was raised by our mustache growers and during our chili cook-off where we took donations during the event. Thanks once again to everyone involved.
Sorry for the silence lately, but we've been busy collecting and tallying pledge totals and cleaning up after our chili cook-off. In the meantime, be sure to check out the gallery today. We've had a bit of fun with photoshop around the office.
Wow, what a turn-out! We had a great time last night at our mustache judging event and chili cook-off. A rough donation tally puts us well over $5,000 raised for the MACC fund. We thank everyone that had a part to play in this fundraiser - the gowers, chili chefs, organizers, our sponsors, clean-up crew, local media, the web community, and all of the attendees.
Please check out the winners gallery posted earlier today. Also, stay tuned for event photos and a final grand tally. Thanks again!
Well, today is the day of the judging ceremony and chili cook-off. We're happy to report that we've already raised more that $4,000 for our charity. We expect to add to that toal during the event this afternoon. We've update the gallery with the final before & after photos. Be sure to check them out.
We just received notice that Mustache March will be featured in a local news spot. TMJ4's Carole Meekins will be interviewing us today for her ongoing "Positively Milwaukee" news segement. Expected air date is March 31st during their 6PM news program.
Also, we've added another update to the gallery featuring some... interesting music, and added a few more links to the site.

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the day. Participants are required to be sporting a mustache tomorrow according to the official rules. Please stay tuned for a large gallery update tomorrow as the primordial mustaches take form.
Also, there have been more updates in the gallery and links section of the site.
We've added an event page to the site that provides additional details about the mustache juding ceremony and chili cook-off. Please watch this page as details of the event unfold. Also, on Monday we updated the gallery again. Things are getting pretty hairy in there. Get it, hairy?
