FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- If Old Town Fort Collins seems a little hairier than usual this weekend, there’s a reason.

The Rocky Mountain Beard & Moustache Club is hosting their 4th annual Beard Bout at Hodi’s Half Note on Saturday, June 10.

The beard and moustache competition is a fundraiser for Life for the Innocent, an organization that works with communities to rescue and help children affected by human trafficking. Last year, the Beard Bout raised over $10,000 for the group. This year they hope to raise over $13,000.

There will be live music throughout the night. Tickets are available at the door for $15. For more information, check out their Facebook and event pages.
