A costume-clad, mustache-donning crowd of supporters convened Friday night and watched the final numbers tick in: 3-1-9-6-1.
"But wait!" said Ryan Sullivan, the leader of the Hastings chapter of Mustaches4Kids. "I told that total to someone a minute ago, and they gave us $40 more. So we're officially at $32,000!"
The fundraising total represents a generous and notable achievement for the Mustaches4Kids organization, a group that encourages area men to go without shaving for one month while simultaneously raising money and awareness for a local charity.
