Sponsors are like bras…

Written by Amie. Posted in Campaign, Pit Bash, Pits for Tits 2014

They lift you up when you’re feeling down and they protect you from chafing. Well, our wonderful sponsors are like our bras. They have supported us in our hair-raising efforts for the past three years and we can’t thank them enough. We’re going to try though, with this little blog post to say thank you a million times over and to ask you to recognize their efforts too.

Many of our sponsors have also kindly donated gifts to award to our fine participants who will be competing on October 30 at our Pit Bash for one of five award categories: the Brad Pit, the Jolie Pit, the Pitiful, the Pit Boss and the Pit Crew. Our sponsors have also donated raffle prizes for all of our Pit Bash guests to try their hand at winning.

Don't forget, October 30 is our final Pit Bash at the House of Targ, 7-9 p.m. This is an open event for all to come, $5 at the door. Mavens and Mavericks, bring your family and friends, enjoy a drink or two, eat some perogies, play some arcade games, compete to win and kick off the rest of the night with great live music. We're looking forward to celebrating our fourth and final year with you. See you on the 30th!

OKTOBERFEST 2014 RECAP

Written by Amie. Posted in Campaign, Pits for Tits 2014

Four day sago, the Unshaven Mavens took part in our fourth Beau’s Oktoberfest at Vankleek Hill. Over the course of two days, we sold raffle tickets, chopped hair, shaved heads (chests and armpits too) and as always, had a grand time. We just wanted to say thank you to our volunbeers, to Beau’s, to Salon My Place and to everyone who donated to us last weekend. This event is always a great way for us to kick off our campaign and this year was no exception. Missed out on the fun? Check it out below:

The fine folk at Beau’s are genuine, generous, gregarious and golly-jee-whiz do they know how to throw a party!

We are happy to say that for a fourth year in a row, the Unshaven Mavens will help Beau’s fundraise at its annual Oktoberfest in Vankleek Hill. Come out and find our fabulous volunbeers at any ticket station, merchandise table, beer ticket tent or activity sign up spot. We’ll be selling raffle tickets for the infamous Face on a Cap contest. That’s right, your face, on a 100,000 Beau’s beer bottle caps. How’s that for a confidence booster eh? And who can forget the dreaded Dunk Tank O’ Beer! That’s right, it’s back! Who will be this year’s unlucky dunkees?

New this year is our pop-up “Chop Shop” manned by the beautiful and talented stylists, Allison and Tricia of Salon My Place. You can choose to either stop by the shop for a real dry cut or wait for our main-stage time slots when the razor sharp duo will be on stage to cut and shave the bravest of you out there.

Here’s a sneak peek at the options available to you at the “Chop Shop”.
