Fun and Hip Events Help Raise Money for At Risk Youth

YOF Social Philanthropy Networking Events

Takes place each October. Participating men grow mustaches, and participating women color their hair. There is no fee to participate. Instead, "growers" and "colorers" engage their families, friends, co-workers, networks to donate funds in support of their mustache-growing/hair-dyeing.
•   Weekly "How’s it Growing" events allow everyone involved to mingle, laugh, stare and mock, all for a good cause.
•   Since its inception in 2004, Mustache4Cash/Color4Kidz has raised more than $600,000 benefiting hundreds of at-risk youth.

The Big Bowlthe-big-bowl-youth-opportunity-foundation-event
Takes place in the spring. Teams compete at bowling and fundraising. •   Each team engages their families, friends, co-workers, networks to raise funds for at-risk youth. On bowling night, the team who has the best bowling score, combined with the highest fundraising total, wins the Big Bowl Bowl.

The Bash
Our annual blowout party coincides with the end of Mustache4Cash/Color4Kidz.
•   This year’s Bash will take place on October 25th, 2012 at The Matchbox in Denver. With costumes, live music, a photo booth and Gentleman's Quarters on hand to shave mustaches, the Bash is a great place to see and be seen.

Through Corporate Fundraising, active donation campaigns, amazing help and involvement from our volunteers, and our three signature Social Philanthropy Networking events, YOF is able to pass along 93 cents of every dollar raised to the Byrne Urban Scholars, The Bridge Project, and Colorado Youth At Risk.
