The NG-KIH DBLLC raised $1,360, with more to come with company matches from Ledcor and Black&Veatch, to help battle Men’s Health issues with their Movember Drive. The brave participants agreed to grow facial hair throughout the month of November with sponsorships from employees of the DBLLC. At the end of the month, an auction was held to pick a beard type the participant would have to reveal the next day.
And, what a reveal it was! A big “THANK YOU” to all of the participants who brought awareness to the issues men face regarding their health and to all of the employees who supported their efforts with financial donations.
Dozens of Beards, Love Locks and Chops are being grown throughout the month of November to honor Men’s Health Month. Several of the brave men of the DBLLC have agreed to shave their faces clean and allow their facial hair to grow for the month of November to help “change the face of men’s health.” To learn more about Movember go to https://us.movember.com/.
Other members of the DBLLC are participating by sponsoring our team’s wooly efforts. If you are interested in supporting the DBLLC Team, you may make a contribution at https://moteam.co/dozens-of-beards-love-locks-and-chops?mc=1.
Time is measured in Days, Weeks and Beards… Good Luck Gentlemen!
The DBLLC put their money where their mouth is, hosting a Chili Cook-Off to raise funds for the Salvation Army Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund. The group raised $445, with a company match making their total contribution $990! There were several entries, with the top honors going to: Kari Walrich, 1st Place; Lilly Neal, 2nd Place; and Susan Johnson, 3rd Place, not to mention the bragging rights the victors get to enjoy, as well. Great job by all of the participants, those who cooked and those who ate for a worthy cause.
