USC Marshall’s ‘Sport Your Stache’ Supports A Better LA

This past weekend, USC Marshall students hosted one of the more eclectic events to benefit A Better LA. With the students challenged to raise $10,000 over 20 days, their strategy professor Carl Voigt agreed to shave his 40-year old mustache if they succeeded.

The ‘Sport Your Stache’ flash fundraiser asked donors to pledge $40—a dollar per year of their professor’s signature mustache. Not only did the business students make good on their promise, but did so in 11 days, with over 200 people contributing to the cause.

We joined them at Q’s Billiards to celebrate the ceremonial ‘stache shaving, where Professor Voigt graciously allowed the group to claim their prize. Needless to say, we are grateful to have been the benefactor of this creative campaign, and know that Professor Voigt will see a great ROI from this fun event! A big thank you to USC Marshall and Professor Voigt!
