November 1 2012 – ELMHURST, IL – Calderone Marketing, a full-service marketing agency, and Nu Crepes, a gourmet crepe restaurant, partner to name Nu Crepes the official Elmhurst “Headquarters for Movember” in an effort to encourage awareness of men’s health issues in the town. Movember is an international month-long event in November encouraging the growth of mustaches in order to raise awareness of prostate cancer and testicular cancer among men.
Elmhurst Headquarters for Movember will host and partake in several fundraisers throughout the month including an “AL-MO-ST THERE!” event on November 17th at Nu Crepes. Nu Crepes will sponsor refreshments, food and free mustache trims with other promotions from local Elmhurst businesses also present at the event. On November 30th, the Elmhurst Headquarters for Movember is organizing another event to crown the “Elmhurst Man of Movember” and the “Miss Movember of Elmhurst”.
Beyond fundraising events, several Elmhurst-based businesses will participate in the other festivities organized by the Elmhurst Headquarters for Movember. Local businesses will participate in “Mustache Monday” or “Whisker Wednesdays” offering discounts and special promotions to those who have grown a mustache on those days. Participants include Nu Crepes who will offer a 15% off on Mondays and Rouse Boutique who will offer a 10% discount on Wednesdays. Women and those not blessed with mustache growing capabilities can make a donation in-store of $2 to receive a faux mustache and are then able to receive discounts and offers.
“Especially coming out of Breast Cancer Awareness month for women, it’s taboo for men and boys to talk about what we need to do to ensure we’re healthy and to make sure our bodies are in good shape.” expressed Joe Calderone, CEO of Calderone Marketing. “Growing a mustache and doing something so visible, literally right under our noses, sprouts conversation about what we’re doing and why we’re doing it.”
To purchase tickets to the “AL-MO-ST THERE!” fundraiser and official “Mo’ Money Mo’ Stache” T-shirts with proceeds going towards the Movember Foundation or for more information, please visit the Mo’ Money Mo’ Stache team page here.
