2012 Competition Results

We want to thank everyone who came out to compete and watch the 3rd Annual Beard & Moustache Competition benefiting Ozarks Food Harvest on Saturday, April 21 at Patton Alley Pub.  We had 63 contestants this year competing in seven different categories.  This was 31 more than we had last year.  We consider this an amazing turnout and could not have done it without the support and promotion from our community.

Ironically, we also doubled what we did for our charity this year, raising $5,223.73 in cash through sponsors, contestants, silent auction, raffle tickets and direct donations.  We also managed to collect 163 pounds of food for the Ozarks Food Harvest food bank.
