No Shaving in “Movember”

For the fourth year in a row, Kyle Reichman and his fuzzyfaced friends will become better known as Team Newport Muzzy, a group that will be committing their facial follicles to the growth of moustaches for the entire month of “Movember” – a cause aimed at raising awareness about cancers that affect men.

On Movember 1, men from around the world register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim, and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery.

Locals are encouraged to attend the group’s kick-off event to learn more about how to join the team, donate, and to meet the men of Team Newport Muzzy at the Fifth Element, 111 Broadway, on Saturday, Movember 2, at 7 p.m.

Newport Muzzy is led by Reichman, who created the team in honor of his father, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007. Over the past three years, Newport Muzzy has raised over $20,000.
