2019 - 'Stache Bash
Dear Friends and Family,
Yes, it's that time of year again where I ridicule myself to help kids in need! This year is extra special to me as after 8 years of growing, and several years on the board, I was nominated chairman. So the pressure is on! 
So some of you maybe asking, you've been growing a mustache for 8 years? What the heck is M4k?.   M4K Richmond improves the quality of life for local children through individual fundraising, partnering with local charities and businesses, and having a little bit of fun with facial hair. 

Basically we grow mustaches for a month as a marketing tool to raise money for local children's charities.  Last year we had nearly 200 growers raise and donate $368,000 to ASKSCAN, Children's Hospital Foundation of Richmond and FeedMore. and several others.  This year we have over 180 growers and are hoping to raise $400,000! 
Children's Hospital Foundation of Richmond is especially close to my heart for all the help they provide to my oldest son Carter.  I truly don’t know what we would do without their expertise and commitment to my family.  CHoR has done so much to support my son and my family over the last 11 years.  
Last year I raised over $5,000 with your great support.  This year I’m hoping to top the $10,000 mark! This has been an extraordinary year for everyone. Our charities and the kids they support need your help now more than ever. Please do what you can.

Lastly, keep an eye on social media as there will be virtual events all month long that everyone is welcome to attend, participate, or spectate. I hope they're entertaining.
Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2014 Sweetest Stache!

My greatest mustache moment in 2014, I was given the honor of being named "Sweetest Stache".  This award goes to the best overall grower considering fundraising and contributions to the effort.  It was truly humbling to be given the green jacket.  One of the duties of Sweetest Stache is to throw out the first pitch at the Squirells Mustache Night in May.  Watch me bring the heat!!
