Gravitate Announces Fundraising Party: íStache for Cash

Vancouver, WA -- With only a few days left to grow, the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas of Gravitate Design Studio are throwing a last-ditch fundraiser and celebration of their Movember efforts at the Brickhouse Bar & Grill Thursday, November 29th from 5pm Ė 8pm. Itís the ĎStache For Cash, and everyone is invited.

Movember is an international movement whose purpose is to raise awareness of and funds toward testicular and prostate cancer. Movember participants grow mustaches all month to signify their participation and support of the cause.

†ďTalking about menís health is something we rarely do on a large-scale, and sometimes not even among our friends and family,Ē said Gravitate employee Kristi Rifenbark. ďMy grandfather passed away from cancer about two weeks after he was finally diagnosed, and that may have been prevented if he wasnít too proud to go to the doctor earlier. Movember allows that necessary discussion to happen in a fun way.Ē

Last year 854,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world helped to raise $126.3 million. This is the first year Gravitate joined the movement.†
