Hair we grow again, one last time
This is our fourth and final year as Unshaven Mavens. We’ve had an incredible experience growing with you in solid-hair-ity, supporting Rethink Breast Cancer and raising hair-wareness of the importance of early detection of lumps under the arms. Thanks to the support and generosity of our Mavens, Mavericks, friends and family, we’ve raised more than $30,000 since 2011 for Rethink’s Live, Laugh, Learn program here in Ottawa. We’re kicking off this year with high hopes and asking you to help us reach our $15,000 goal. Think we can do it? HAIR yeah!
As always, we’re ever so grateful for the support of our partners and sponsors. And this year is no exception.
We’re excited to announce a fun partnership with Knifewear Ottawa! They will be hosting a Pit Prep Party in September in support of our campaign! Stay tuned for more details and check out their beautiful shaving products for men AND women.
The fine folk at Beau’s have become family, going above and beyond each year and inviting us to take part in their incredibly successful Oktoberfest fundraising activities. We’ll be centre stage for our annual shave-a-thon and we’ll also have our very own pop-up “Chop shop” where the lovely ladies of Salon My Place will be cutting hair for donations.
terra20 is a local success story and a wonderful ambassador for healthy beauty products. Once again, they are graciously hosting our one and only Pit Stop at their Wellington West location the evening of Thursday, October 16th.
In keeping with our Debbie Harry-meets-Joan Jet theme, we’ll be rockin’ out for our final Pit Bash and Com-pit-ition at House of TARG. There you’ll enjoy all of the sights and sounds of this barcade (arcade/bar) while stuffing yourself with delicious perogies and competing to determine who takes home prizes for “Pit Boss” (most funds raised by an individual), “Best Pit Crew” (most funds raised by a team), ”Jolie Pit” (nicest pit), “Brad Pit” (hairiest pit), “Pitiful” (least hair growth), and the “Chia Pit” (most hair growth in the first 2 weeks).
So grab your friends, ditch the razor, and get ready to kick some ass!
