With great excitement, Queen City Beard and Moustache Federation would like to announce that we have set the date for the 2016 Queen City Beard and Moustache Federation Competition. Please join us at the 319 Event Center for a night of fun and fundraising on April 16, 2016. As always, we’ll have competitions for the kids, fake beards and moustaches and various categories for the gents with facial hair, from styled to au naturel.
This is the seventh annual QCBMF Beard and Moustache Competition. Each year, we’ve increased the amount raised for charity thanks to our members, competitors, and, most importantly, our generous sponsors. Please consider this the first official call for sponsors for the 2016 competition. Our sponsors make this all possible, and we appreciate it so much. This year, we would like to note that the official deadline for sponsors to be included in print materials for the competition is March 1, 2016. We’ll happily accept donations thereafter, but will not be able to include those sponsors on print materials. More specifics on sponsorship will follow after we’ve chosen our charity for 2016.
To choose a charity this year, we are asking local nonprofit organizations to provide us with a grant proposal, either in formal written form, or as a video or other artistic creation. The QCBMF e-board will narrow the choices, then take those to the membership as a whole in October 2015. We’ll be announcing our charity partner for the 2016 competition after the October QCBMF meeting.
Mark your calendars! As always, plan on a Friday night meet-and-greet, Saturday afternoon activities, and a Saturday night competition and after party. New this year is available childcare for the competition and a planned Sunday brunch.
