BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – The Binghamton Senators announced today that the B-Sens players and staff will grow mustaches this month as they participate in Movember.
Movember is an annual charity event during the month of November where men are encouraged to grow a mustache while raising funds and awareness for men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
Throughout the month, the B-Sens will post pictures and updates of the team’s progress via Twitter @BSensStache. There will also be a photo gallery tracking the team’s weekly progress on the B-Sens official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/binghamtonsenators. A B-Sens Movember starting lineup – one goaltender, two defenseman and three forwards – will be determined based on feedback via Twitter and Facebook.
The efforts of B-Sens players and staff members, spearheaded by B-Sens Movember team captain Eric Gryba, will then culminate as the team hosts the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Saturday, Nov. 24. During the game, there will be a special Movember table on the main concourse of the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena where pictures of the B-Sens Movember starting lineup will be on display.
Fans are encouraged to visit the table to make a donation on behalf of the player in the Movember starting lineup whom they feel has grown the best mustache. With each donation of $1 or more, fans will receive a raffle ticket to place in the jar that corresponds with the picture of their chosen player.
The B-Sens player whose mustache earns the most donations will draw a winner from his jar. That winner will receive a special meet and greet session with the B-Sens Movember starting lineup and an autographed action photo of the winning player courtesy of Just Sports Photography.
Tickets to the game are $19 for side seating and $18 for end seating. Fans can purchase tickets through the B-Sens’ executive office, Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena box office and all Ticketmaster outlets during normal business hours, by visiting www.ticketmaster.com, or by phone at 607-722-SENS (7367) and through Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000.
Funds raised in the U.S. support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men, through programs run directly by Movember and its men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.
