4th Street Vine [2142 E. 4th St., Long Beach CA 90814; 562-343-5463] will host the 2nd Annual Movember fundraiser “Shave The Date” Party, Thursday, Movember 1, 6-10pm. The Movember organization is a global group raising awareness for Men’s health issues, specifically focused on prostate and testicular cancer. Once registered at www.movember.com, men start Movember 1st clean shaven, and for the rest of the month, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery—all the while gathering supporters to sponsor their growth.
The “Shave The Date” party will feature a licensed barber, as well as live music and hot dogs, courtesy of Dogfellas. This is the first of three events scheduled for the month of November including the Check-In Party on Wednesday, November 14th and the Mustache Showcase Party on Friday, November 30th, both from 6-10pm. Each night, 15% of hotdog proceeds, 10% of the bar and 100% of all donations will go to Movember.
4th Street Vine is again sponsoring the Drapes of Wrath team, led by captain Robert Zwolak and chief mate Jim Ritson, co-owner of 4th Street Vine. Last year, the 31-member team raised a little over $6,000. Their goal this year is to gather a 100-150 person team to raise at least $20,000!
