Official Press Release:

QCBMf Partners with the Mystery Hour to Support Diaper Bank of the Ozarks

Springfield, MO, January 17, 2017–Queen City Beard and Moustache Federation is excited to announce that we’re pairing with local late-night talk show, The Mystery Hour, to support the Diaper Bank of the Ozarks on March 24, 2017 at 7:30 P.M. at the Gillioz Theatre. The Mystery Hour generously donates 10 percent of the door to their non-profit partner; all funds raised by QCBMF will be added to our check to the Diaper Bank of the Ozarks in May, 2017.

The Cloth Diaper Lending Library is an exciting addition to the services of the Diaper Bank of the Ozarks and we’re all so excited to be helping. I was a cloth diaper mom myself, and am so glad that families in need will be able to keep their babies happy, healthy and dry, said Media Coordinator Michelle Hethcoat of QCBMF.

Please join us to laugh, support a local show, and help families (and their babies!) at this filming of the Mystery Hour.

Queen City Beard and Moustache Federation is committing to supporting our community through donations, fundraising, and volunteer efforts; we invite the community to join us each month on the second Wednesday at 6:00 P.M. or to find us on Facebook.

Our Year in Review

2016-competitionAnother year down. In the last year, we gathered diapers for the Ozarks Diaper Bank, prepared meals for the Veteran’s Coming Home center and Harmony House, helped out at the Haven (and our members took home two furry friends!), raised $14,000 for the Springfield Community Gardens, devoted a morning to working at the garden, cleaned up our section of Campbell, and gathered food for Harvesters in Kansas City. We welcomed a tiny new member with a baby shower, had a 4th of July party, and celebrated a few birthdays in there as well. I’m sure that isn’t quite all, but I’m writing this from memory.

Our members took home trophies at competitions across the country, from Colorado to California to Tennessee, including a number of first place wins.

We took a big step when we completed our 501C3 filing with the IRS, making us an official non-profit agency. Comment and share your favorite QCBMF memory from the year.
