    The 7th Annual Alberta Beard & Moustache Championhips | A Night to Remember

    Last night, we had the incredible honour of hosting the 7th Annual Alberta Beard and Moustache Championships alongside our friends at The Palomino Smokehouse, and we're excited to share that it was a great success! The event brought together beard and moustache enthusiasts from across the country, all competing for the coveted titles while supporting a great cause. This year, we once again partnered with The Safe Haven Foundation of Canada, a local charity dedicated to keeping homeless and at-risk girls safe, off the streets, and in school. We are thrilled to announce that we raised $1,277, and every penny will go directly to The Safe Haven Foundation.

    Highlights of the Evening

    The night was filled with camaraderie, laughter, and some truly magnificent facial hair. Contestants competed in various categories, showcasing their grooming skills and unique styles. The competition was fierce, from full beards to stylish moustaches, and the judges had a tough time selecting the winners.

    A Big Thank You

    We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated, attended, and supported this event. Your enthusiasm and generosity made this night possible. We also want to give a special shoutout to our volunteers, judges, and sponsors who contributed their time and resources. And a special thank you to our friend and event partner Arlen for once again being a great emcee.
