This year, we sponsored the #MagicMustache Night held by Orlando Magic and Florida Hospital. On November 1, 2014, survivors and supporters alike joined together to spread the word about prostate cancer. Founder Dr. Vipul Patel and board member Oscar Robertson hosted a pre-game reception, a half time presentation, and tribute to the prostate cancer survivors in attendance.

Social Media and Television helped us spread the word and create a buzz. Fox Sports interviewed Oscar during Pre-Game, and you can see they had a little mustache fun on air! Live tweets and other social media posts were fed live on the center court screen throughout the evening.

With over 15,000 attendees, the night was a great success, educating and honoring the community and survivors! Let’s keep this momentum going throughout the month of November. If you haven’t already grown your mustache , then get started! Create your own social media campaign among your friends and colleagues, after all it’s for a great cause.

We encourage you this month to grow that mustache and Share it to our Facebook page! Don’t forget the hash tag. #magicmustache
