NovemBeard for the Cure is a non-profit organization designed to help raise money and awareness for the fight against cancer. Over the past two years, NovemBeard for the Cure has been able to raise over $6,700 which has been donated to the Blood and Cancer ward of Akron Children's Hospital. NovemBeard for the Cure started In 2007 when a group of friends in the local Kent music scene decided not to shave for the entire month of November while trying to raise money for a little girl named Ellie, who was suffering from a devastating cancer. They were able to raise over $2,200 that they were then able to donate to the hospital where Ellie was being treated, Akron Children's. At the end of November, a benefit concert was held to help raise more money for their cause. The concert was a success and they decided to call their money-raising event "NovemBeard for the Cure" adopting the motto of "We're Not Shaving 'Till We Raise This Money!".
Last year, NovemBeard for the Cure was back in celebration for Ellie's cancer being in remission. NovemBeard was able to raise over $4,500 to once again donate to Akron Children's Hospital. Again, a benefit concert was held at the end of November, and was even more successful than the previous year. This was largely due to addition of NovemBeard "sponsors", who donated items and prizes to be raffled off at the concert. Last year's sponsors included Time Warner Cable, 100.7 WMMS, Huntington Bank, and many more.
This year, NovemBeard foor the Cure is at it again with a goal of reaching $8,000 to donate to Akron Children's. They are currently seeking sponsors to help make this year's NovemBeard the biggest success yet. A benefit concert is also planned for the end of November, where all proceeds will be donated to NovemBeard for the Cure. The current line up for this year's concert includes Drop to Zero, Of One Blood, State Your Cause, Redwater RoJo, Out With the Octopus, and The Approach and the Execution. The concert is scheduled for Saturday, November 28, at the Robin Hood Bar and Grille in Kent, Ohio. Any person/business/organization wishing to donate to, or become a sponsor of NovemBeard for the Cure, should visit myspace.com/novembeardforthecure or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Thank you.
And remember, "We're Not Shaving Until We Raise This Money!"
