MOVEMBER CHALLENGE KARAOKE TORONTO 2013

On Thursday, November 28, for the 4th year in a row, Movember Challenge Karaoke comes to Toronto. This year, the party will happen at the Winchester Kitchen and Bar (51 Winchester St.).

Created in 2010 by Mo Bros Sean Boulton and Joshua Murray, Movember Challenge Karaoke Toronto (#MoChaKaTO) combined their enthusiasm for karaoke and raising money to support research and results in men’s health through the worldwide Movember movement.

Each year since, MoChaKaTO has become bigger, better and raised more money, much like Movember itself, which has now funded 577 projects in 21 countries through 20 men’s health partners. In 2012, the Moustache Farmers of Canada raised $1680 at their end of the month event. And this year, the re-named Moustache Growers Union Local 416647 is looking to raise even more.

With a shout out to Montell Jordan, this is how we do it – invites have been sent out to friends and family, and word of mouth and social media campaigns will continue to pick up steam as the month rolls along and November 28th gets closer.

And this is how Challenge Karaoke works:
• For $5, participants get their name in the karaoke rotation and are able to sing when their turn is called.
• For $20, when any of your friends (or strangers) are called for their turn, you can challenge them to sing any song in the karaoke library. You do not need to be a singer to challenge someone on their turn.
• For $30, a singer can buy themselves out of a challenge. This rarely happens, but can occur if a singer doesn’t know a song or really, really, really dislikes it.
• For $50, singers can choose to sing a song from karaoke host Jason Rolland’s list of banned songs/artists.
• For $100, a singer can sing a song by ultra-super-banned artist Celine Dion. Boulton adds, “Someone has stepped up to the plate each year for this – maybe this year we’ll get two? Is it possible to hear too much Celine?”.

That’s how it works. It’s simple, really. And a whole lot of fun.

There will also be fake moustaches available for non-growers and a raffle with an awesome array of prizes at the event. All attendees are encouraged to purchase an arm’s length of tickets for their chance to win.

At the end of the night, the goal is to raise money for Movember. Each of the eight team members – (Returning) Boulton, Murray, Jason Chan, Jason Carlin, Andy Arias, Jessica Law, (New) Rannie Turingan, Terri-Leigh Holbeche, Christopher LongtinMichael Caputo, Russel Harder and Michel Neray – have their own reasons to step up and support men’s health initiatives in Canada and around the world. Murray explains, “I’m dedicating part of my moustache to my building superintendent. John is a solid guy who has fought prostate cancer and continues to fight every day”.

Too many Canadian men are affected by prostate or testicular cancers and mental illness each year. Not including the friends and families of those men who are affected as well. It is our goal as Mo Bros and Mo Sistas of the Moustache Growers Union Local 416647 to help raise funds and awareness to combat these diseases and help as many men as possible.

Join us at the Winchester Kitchen and Bar on Thursday, November 28 for Movember Challenge Karaoke Toronto and help us reach those goals!
