Firefighters raise money with mustache bash


There are dozens of women who are looking forward to Friday night!

That's because their husbands and boyfriends will finally be shaving some pretty wild mustaches.

It's all in good fun...and it's for charity too!

We're talking about the annual mustache bash!

Firefighters from around the area pay to participate... then take donations.

They grow a mustache for the entire month of February.

Then tomorrow night... they'll shave it off during a fundraising party at Corby's in South Bend.

"You get handlebars, that's a pretty common one," said mustache grower Rick Springstead. "We have a gentleman on our department who can grow a thick bushy mustache in what seems like a day. It's very impressive."

The money raised goes to The Hoosier Burn Camp and the Firefighter Cancer Support Network.

You can go and cheer on the guys at Corby's tomorrow night.

The Mustache Bash starts at 7 pm.
