Growing lip sweaters and wearing mustachioed sweaters to raise awareness and donations for men’s health, the Las Vegas Wranglers collected a total of $6,286 from Movember initiatives.
Through month-long donations to the Wranglers’ Movember team page, a total of $1,754 was raised to benefit the national Movember charities. To wrap up the event, the entire team donned specialty Movember jerseys for the home game on Friday, Nov. 30, and held a silent auction on the game-worn jerseys to raise $4,532 for the Nevada Cancer Coalition. The funds collected for NCC will stay in-state to help prevent, detect and treat cancer, and contribute to research fundraising efforts.
“The commitment of the Wranglers and Friday night’s game dedicated to men’s health not only elevated awareness about prostate and testicular cancer, but also provided crucial funding to serve Nevadans,” said Cari Herington, Executive Director at the Nevada Cancer Coalition. “The Wranglers exemplify what makes Las Vegas truly amazing – individuals and organizations stepping up to make a difference in our community – and we cannot thank them enough for their partnership in promoting men’s health.”
