Mo bros plan show

Movember fundraising hockey game to take place in Port Hardy this weekend.

PORT HARDY—For many North American men, the month of Movember is simply an excuse to grow out their facial hair without commitment or fear of criticism for the look.

But while most are content to simply help bring awareness to the issue of prostate cancer, a pair of Port Hardy men’s hockey teams are putting their money where their lips are.

The Port Hardy Warriors and crosstown rival Port Hardy Bulls square off Saturday at 9:15 p.m. in the first Movember hockey fundraiser game to battle prostate cancer.

The brainchild of the Port Hardy Warriors’ Brian Texmo, who vows to grow the “greasiest ‘stache” on the ice, the game is a way for the public to come and see both a lively hockey matchup and the various styles of goatees, fu manchus, handlebars, pencil-thins and beards participants are willing to show off.

“I feel the North Island community would be more than happy to come watch a hockey game and see some ‘staches on ice and donate for a great cause,” said Texmo.

Admission will be by donation, and fundraising efforts will be supplemented by a wide range of prize raffles and activities including 50/50 draws, puck toss, door prizes and a loonie stick.

All funds raised will go to men’s health awareness.

Anyone willing to donate prizes or money may contact Texmo at 250-230-1087 or Leigh Deans at 250-230-8409.

Contributions may also be made on Texmo’s movember.com page at mobro.co/Btexmo.
