Pisco Bar’s Movember 2016 is our biggest fundraiser to spark conversations, create awareness and raise funds in a non-serious manner for men’s prostate cancer and with the proceeds going directly to the National Cancer Society Malaysia – an initiative that we’ve put in place since 2013. Already an established movement around the world, Movember is about bringing the moustache back; it is about having fun for a very serious cause.
This year, Pisco Bar’s Movember journey begins in 1st November 2016 as we are kick-starting the fundraising campaign with an official SHAVE OFF event at Gentlemen’s Tonic, Publika.
During the whole month of Movember, we will run a fundraising campaign at Pisco Bar and online. Our Ambassadors and all those who volunteer will be spreading the word about Movember to raise funds for the cause by selling tickets for a raffle with amazing prizes.
Movember 2016 will conclude with the Official Movember party to be held on the 24th November 2016, Thursday, starting at 9pm. This is annual fundraising party with cover charge and raffle with all the proceeds going to NCSM. The event includes performances, auction, lucky draws from the raffles tickets and Best Moustache contest.
At this stage, personalities such as Ash Nair (Actor), Prakash Daniel (Comedian), Sha’arin Razali Wong (Fashion Designer) or Megat Alfie amongst others have confirmed their participation as Ambassadors.
Some companies (Zalora, PARKSON, TRADERS HOTEL, SWISS GARDEN, Bfab, Halliburton, etc.) and business are also participating as sponsors, whether involving their teams (growing moustaches) into the movement or donating gifts for our annual raffle.
