TORONTO—In a slight twist on
Movember, the month when men grow mustaches in support men’s health awareness, Lyle
Hall of HLT Advisory had raised more than $13,200 as of December 2, by offering
to shave off his trademark mustache.
It’s gone, but to see the results you have to donate to Hall’s Cash for
the Stache campaign by December 9.

In other Movember news, Marty
Hutt, team captain of the Sheraton Parkway Mo-Tel Toronto North team reports they attracted
22 participants to their inaugural Movember event.
“The entire team raised $5,670 and we had two
exceptional fundraising efforts. One associate raised $1,515 and another raised
$1,140. They were both recognized by Movember as “Platinum Club Members”. Less
than 5 per cent of all Movember participants raise more than $1,000 so having
two people on the team reach that mark was amazing,” said Hutt.
“For fundraising we of course did the usual request for pledge donations plus
raffles and bake sales. However, we did have one exceptional idea that raised a
lot of money. We had one associate, Kenny Lem, who retired after 27 years of
service in the kitchen. To raise money he offered to let people shave off his
goatee, which had not been shaved off in all those years. This single event
Lem's metamorphosis is shown in the series of photos below.
