Win $200 for supporting Movember!


What is Movember?

In 2003 two mates (Travis Garone and Luke Slattery) met up for a quiet beer in Melbourne, Australia, and the idea of Movember was born. The moustache had all but disappeared from fashion trends. Could they bring it back in the name of raising funds for charity? They found 30 guys willing to take up the challenge. Now in 2017 the Movember phenomenon is global with over 5 million mo bros and mo sistas supporting the cause to date.

The reality is, our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent. Movember is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. They’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

They know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. Movember is independent of government funding, so they can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 13 years they’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.


By 2030 Movember plan to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.



How is Balcony Bar & Oyster Co getting involved?


Our mission to raise funds for Movember has two parts

1) Donate directly to the charity from the proceeds of our Cocktail of the Month

2) Inspire and incentivise others to get involved for a larger and more continuous approach.


Part 1: We wanted to create the most manly and masculine of drinks so we went to the drawing board. Who just exudes masculinity? Who rocks the most impressive mustache of all time? Of course the first name that came to mind was Ron Burgundy of Anchorman. So we created the Rum Burgundy Cocktail made with Stolen Rum, Kings Ginger Liqueur, Burnt Orange Syrup and Lemon Juice. $1 from every Rum Burgundy sold during the month of November will be donated directly to the Movember charity.


Part 2: What better way to get more people involved in the fundraising process than offering a prize for the most money raised? Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. are giving away a $200 gift voucher to spend in venue for the Movember team member that raises the most money. This gift voucher can be spent on food or drinks in venue and can even be shared with your friends and family as a thanks for supporting your donation page.


How can you get involved?


Anyone can join our team all you have to do is head to the Movember website, create your own fundraising page and join the Balcony Bar & Oyster Co team. Once you’re all signed up you can get your family and friends to donate to the cause in your name and the team member with the most funds raised by the end of the month wins!
