The annual Stache Dash is dashing through Central City on Sunday, Nov. 17, from 8 to 9:30, followed by a tailgate party at Central City BBQ.
The NOLA Stache Dash is a 2 mile competitive run and fun run held in conjunction with Tailgate for a Cause to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer, the nation’s third leading cause of death for men.
Proceeds from donations, sponsorships, raffles, auctions and tailgate passes benefit patients of the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic, which provides health services to the city’s music community. Every $100 raised will provide one prostate cancer screening for a local musician.
You don’t have to walk or run to enjoy the event. The tailgate party features the Saints SupaFans, PussyFooters and more to help the crowd warm up for the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tailgate tickets will include unlimited beer, wine, bloody Marys, brunch and live music by New Orleans’ own Parole Violation, plus a mustache contest.
The race begins and ends at Central City BBQ, 1201 Rampart St. Traffic will be restricted along the route until the last participant passes and course materials are removed.
