FENTON, MI - The Laundry, a casual euro-bistro located in downtown Fenton, MI, is winding down its month-long fundraising and awareness campaign in cooperation with the MOvember Foundation, but itís not too late to participate.

ďAll of us at The Laundry are proud to participate in MOvember this year,Ē says Laundry co-owner Mark Hamel.  ďMost of our male staff members started the month of November clean-shaven and have been growing their moustaches all month long.  But our female staff has been really supportive of the effort, too.Ē  Hamel says these Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have become walking, talking billboards for menís health, raising awareness of, and funds for, the treatment of prostate and testicular cancer along the way.

The MOvember Foundation is a global menís health charity encouraging men to grow and women to support the Mo (moustache) for the 30 days of November.  The foundation started in Melbourne, Australia in 2003 with 30 guys participating.  Amazed by the fun they had and the conversations sparked, four of the original members made their Mo-growing an annual, official charitable endeavor.

MOvember came to the US in 2007 with 2127 participants raising over $740,000.  Funds are put toward the early diagnosis and treatment of prostate and testicular cancer and mental illness in men.  This year, there will be official MOvember campaigns in 21 countries.  Globally, 3 million participants have raised more than $446 million to date.

If the public would like to participate, there are donation boxes at The Laundry.  Donations can also be made by adding $2 to a check when dining in.  A special cocktail has also been concocted, with all proceeds going to the MOvember donation tally.  Donations will be accepted through November 30.

A part of the Fenton community for over a decade, The Laundry serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week in a casual bistro atmosphere.   A full bar features a unique range of craft beers and a dynamic selection of wines and pre-Prohibition cocktails.

The Laundry is open Monday thru Thursday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.  Contact The Laundry at 810.629.8852 or visit lunchandbeyond.com.
