Team Arctic Walrus fights cancer




In an attempt to put cancer in its place, nearly 20 fine individuals from around the state joined forces for a fourth year to raise money by growing mustaches. This unique fundraiser, called Movember, has grown dramatically over the last few years, but Team Arctic Walrus has been a stalwart in this fight, celebrating its four year anniversary in 2012.

To commemorate this accomplishment, and the fact that they raised more than $7,000 this year, the group hosted its annual gala celebration at the Down East Saloon on Saturday, Dec. 1. The gala was a smashing success.

The team would like to thank 100th Monkey and Los Holy Santos Gang for their fantastic music. A special thanks also goes out to the Down East, who not only hosted the event, but also donated money to the cause. Lastly, a very special thanks to all of those who supported the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas. See you next year.
