After a month of preparation, marketing, writing and hoping, the 'Stache Bash is finally here.
During the Sons of Ben tailgate for today's Philadelphia Union - Vancouver Whitecaps game at PPL Park, 'Stache Bash will be taking place. 6abc will cover the event and will have something on the event in the upcoming week.
If you haven't already bought a shirt, Bark Tees will have a limited supply available for sale during the tailgate. Credit cards are now accepted for payment.
So far the 'Stache Bash has raised over $6500 for the Sons of Ben's "Help Kick Hunger" campaign, which collects charity funds for the Bernadine Center in Chester. During the 'Stache Bash itself there will be raffles for various prizes, including Philadelphia Flyers suite-level seating for the team's first playoff home game in the 2011 NHL playoffs.
The hope is to raise as much money as possible for Chester and the Bernadine Center. If you did not buy a ticket to the tailgate, do not worry. Tickets for the tailgate were for the food that the Sons of Ben serve (and last year, also for beer. It's currently BYOB), not for 'Stache Bash itself. You can enter the tailgating area and participate in the booths or raffles without payment for the food. Please do. It's all for a good cause.
