Friends, this year’s MovemberIndy Month End Gala Party was fantastic. We’re still tallying all the vital numbers, and our friends at MediaFuel are putting together a video treatment together to help summarize the event (teaser: check out the awesome work they did for Sun King’s Kick Off Tapping Party!) In the meantime, suffice it to say, Indy fought the good fight in a major way this year! We’ll be back in the coming days with a thorough summary before MovemberIndy.com goes into its annual post-Movember hibernation, but let us say this now:
Thank you, Indy, for an AMAZING Movember!
MoBros & MoSistas, we’re fast approaching the end of another (wonderfully successful) Movember. Before you know it, it’ll be time to hang up the ‘stache for another 11 months, and you’ll see quite few more clean-shaven faces around Indy (to the relief of many spouses and partners, I’m sure). But before we get ahead of ourselves, we have one more MovemberIndy event to look forward to, and its the biggest one of all:
The End of Movember Gala Party.
If you’re new to Movember or how we do things at MovemberIndy, let me tell you – this is it. This is where all the hard work pays off. This is where we relax and cut loose to celebrate an amazing month of fighting the good fight. This is changing the face of men’s health. This is our Catalina Wine Mixer.
It’s also one of our biggest fundraisers. More than just a party to celebrate what we’ve accomplished, its also a way to continue the cause. Proceeds from the door benefit Movember. Proceeds from the beverages benefit Movember. Proceeds from the food benefits Movember. Plus we’ll have raffle items and a silent auction running all night, all to benefit Movember. So mark your calendars – this is where we take the month to the next level!
Here’s the run down on the important details:
- WHEN: Friday, December 6th, 2013 – 7:00pm to 11:00pm
- WHERE: The Speak Easy - 5255 North Winthrop Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46220
- WHAT: Celebrate a month of Changing the Face of Men’s Health!
- HOW MUCH: $10 gets you in the door – 100% goes to Movember. (Donate early here!)

Join us for one final hirsute hurrah!
Tomorrow! SATURDAY! Set an alarm! Set TWO!
DON’T MISS THIS!
MoBros and MoSistas, here’s one that really walks the walk (bipedal-locomotion pun completely intended). What better way to support changing the face of men’s health than to get out there and do something healthy? Join MovemberIndy and The Mo Run for its inaugural Indianapolis event!
Keep an eye out for the MovemberIndy tent, too! Our team will be on-site, spreading the Mo-love, and supporting all the fine Mo-siblings partaking in this scenic 5K (and some of us will be participating alongside you all, too!)
For more details on registration prices, where to pick up runners’ packets, the race route, and the post-race party – head on over to The Mo Run’s own website!
Run. RUN. And then RUN SOME MO.
Our fine friends over at Easley Winery are running a great contest over on their Facebook page! Follow their instructions (also pictured below) to upload a photo of your Mo’ in all its glory to their FB page, and start campaigning! The photo with the most Likes come December 1st will receive an addition $250 donation to their own Movember campaign!
This is also a great opportunity to remind you that donations don’t have to end with the month! Movember tends to keep the donation mechanisms open for some time after Movember 30th, and with so many Month-End Gala Parte’s taking place in the first week of December (including MovemberIndy’s own!) the cancer-fighting dollars keep rolling in!
Show your mo’ – win some dough!
(for Movember, that is)
