Each year, across the globe, the Movember campaign wraps up with a night to remember in the form of the official Movember Gala Partés hosted in key cities within the 21 countries Movember operates in. These Gala Partés give thanks to all of the Mo Bros that have dedicated their faces to men’s health issues (including prostate and testicular cancer) and all of the Mo Sistas that have demonstrated their unwavering support of the Mo for the 30 days of November.
Keeping in the spirit of Movember – having fun whilst doing good – the Gala Partés feature Mo Bros and Mo Sistas donning fancy dress to suit their Mo’s or their Mo Bros, while they celebrate all-things-moustache.
With their outfits and their attitudes to suit their Mo’s, Mo Bro’s compete for the coveted title of Man of Movember: Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban or Pretoria. Each of the individual South African Gala city winners of Man Of Movember will go forward to compete against all of the winners from around the globe. Deserving Mo Bros stand the chance to see their moustache-growing efforts earning them a badge of honour and the possibility of etching their names in the global Movember Hall of Fame, like 2011 Cape Town Man of Movember winner, Anton Taylor, who was crowned the International Man of Movember by the Moustache Handle Bar Club in the UK.
In addition to the South African Man of Movember 2014 – the Best Mo in Character, Lame Mo and Miss Movember are just a few of the titles that will be judged by a panel of judges including Movember Mo Bro Ambassador, 5FM’s Nick Hamman, at each of the four Gala Partés.
Entertainment at the Gala Partés varies from city to city, with the line-ups including Movember ambassadors Jack Parow and Shortstraw, as well as Crazy White Boy, Freshly Ground and Good Luck.
Come celebrate all that is good and hairy and end your hair-raising adventure in style. Tickets are free to Mo Bros and Mo Sistas who have raised R200 (single ticket) or R300 (double ticket) and tickets are redeemable from individual Mo Space pages on the Movember website, www.movember.com. A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase online and at the door.
