Today, Friday, November 1st, is the day...or evening, really, to begin NovemBEARD with the American Cancer Society! Grab your happy hour team and get to Forrager tonight at 5 PM for the kick-off party!

What's it all about? About raising money for the American Cancer Society and trying to save lives, help people on the cancer journey, and more!

In 2017 alone, more than 830,000 men will be diagnosed with cancer in the US. That’s why we’re recruiting men to fight back through our novem-BEARD campaign. These Southern Minnesota area men will grow their facial hair throughout the month of November to raise awareness and funds to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
