Mosaic Wine Group celebrates the month of Movember for Cancer Research

Mosaic Wine Group is a proud supporter of Movember: Changing the Face of Men’s Health and will be hosting a special fundraising benefit for this great cause with an event at Parkside Restaurant in Austin, TX on Monday, November 23rd from 7-10pm. The event will include fine wines from the Mosaic Wine Group portfolio, incredible food from Parkside Restaurant and music from Austin’s own Slow Down Lady.

WHAT IS MOVEMBER?
Movember is the month formerly known as November, and has become an important month for raising awareness and funds for cancer research that afflicts males – specifically testicular and prostate cancers, which affects 1-in-6 men.
During the month of Movember men across the globe will be growing mustaches, hosting events and raising money for this important cause.Movember Poster

The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia to help raise awareness towards cancers that afflict males, specifically testicular and prostate cancer. The movement has spread globally, and to date Movember has raised over $47 million for this important cause. Mosaic Wine Group has launched its own team, MO’BETTA, with a goal of spreading the good word and raising funds and awareness. The Lance Armstrong Foundation is one of the primary beneficiaries of Movember, and Mosaic Wine Group is honored to be a part of this movement.

WHAT DOES MOVEMBER MEAN TO ME?
Earlier this year my father, Ron Redman, was diagnosed with colon cancer at 68 years old. This news was devastating to my family, given what little we actually knew about cancer. That was when a good friend of mine, Chris Brewer, from the Lance Armstrong Foundation came to the rescue. He put us in contact with the foundation, who flooded my family with information on cancer, treatments and recovery, which armed us with knowledge that my father could beat this thing! Having long been a supporter of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, now I have a vested interest in supporting the cause to help find a cure.
