On the heels of Halloween comes the global, month-long event known as Movember, a cause-driven celebration where men grow mustaches in order to raise funds and awareness for the health risks facing them. With people from around the world going the entire month without surrendering to the razor, you can think of it as a play-off beard where everyone is on the same team.

imgresJoining the “Mo” community are select members of The Agency who have formed their own team to help in the fight against testicular and other cancers affecting our male population. Our Chief Technology Officer Shane Farkas will head the 14-member group that includes The Agency Co-Founder and President Billy Rose, Mike Leipart (Chief Marketing Officer), CEO and Co-Founder Mauricio Umansky, along with the support of “Mo Sistas” Aileen Comora, Jeeb O’Reilly, and Sophia Harang (Marketing Coordinator).

The Movember Foundation will also sponsor Angeleno Magazine’s “Modern Man” event being held at the London West Hollywood later this week. Among L.A.’s Leading Modern Latino Gentlemen is our very own Mauricio Umansky, whose civic impact will be honored in the November issue, alongside Carlos Carreras, Mario Lopez, Robert Rodriguez and Raymond Garcia.

Be sure to stay tuned for more snapshots and updates as we continue to follow The Agency men and women on their Movember journeys. And in case you’ve already started sporting a stache of your own, don’t forget to visit our list of the top barbershops when the growing gets tough and you’re in need of some first-class grooming.
