When Dad passed in 2014, I knew I wanted to do something to help his legacy live on, so immediately my brother Cameron and I started growing out our mustaches. It soon became clear that our facial hair would never truly measure up to the legendary stache of Mike Wentworth, and I knew we needed to do something bigger and better to honor him. We kept growing out our mustaches and that November, Stache Sergeants was born. We invited a group of our close friends out for a round of golf on 11/30/14 and asked each of them to grow their staches and write a check or make a minimum donation of $20 to American Cancer Society in honor of Michael M. Wentworth. That year, with the help of my amazing then fiance Daphne, who had graciously agreed to let me grow my stache for another month, we had our first Stache Sergeants’ Movember Golf Tournament and raised just over $500.
We have grown a little bigger every year since, and we are proud to say that at our 3rd annual tournament in 2016 we raised just over $7,800 and helped Friday Harbour to provide approximately 156 nights of free housing for cancer patients and their families coming to Houston to receive treatment in the Houston Medical Center. Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 for Friday Harbour, and by adding more events and increasing awareness, we hope to eventually become a leader for charitable fundraising in the Houston community.
“Come for the stache and stay for the cause!”
