We know who reigns supreme in New York City, our very own DonorsChoose.org VP of Operations, Cesar “Maximus” Bocanegra!
Cesar, along with more than 50 fearless competitors, made the evening of December 13th a night to remember at the Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, where all gathered for the biggest mustache face off to date- Mustaches for Kids New York ‘Stache Bash. Mustachioed men and women celebrated the $75,000 raised for New York public schools through DonorsChoose.org in a month-long battle with growers from across the country. New York City prevailed as the chapter with the most money raised for public school classroom projects this year!
For an inside look at the ambivalence of mustache growers’ loved ones, be sure to check out the amazing M4K documentary that highlights the struggles friends, family and partners of the mustache growers face throughout the growing season.
Thank you to the generous donors and dedicated growers who helped Mustaches for Kids-New York shatter the all-time, single-season fundraising record with more than $75,000!
Thank you again for another mustache filled season!
