Good excuse to grow mustache

Have you ever wanted to grow a mustache and the girlfriend or wife wouldn’t let you?

There’s now a good excuse to let the facial hair grow with the first Hastings Mustaches4Kids mustache grow-off set to start Thursday.

Mustaches4Kids is a national organization that encourages men to grow mustaches as a fundraiser for local youth charities.

“A group of guys came up with an idea to raise money for kids and have fun doing it and mustaches came into play,” said Ryan Sullivan, a local organizer.

Sullivan, who was part of the Omaha chapter before moving to Hastings, said the organization Mustaches4Kids is a great way to encourage men to go out and raise money while growing some cool looking facial hair.

For more information, attend the Clean Shave Event 7 p.m. Thursday at Rivals Bar and Grill, 3100 Osborne Drive East, or visit
