My MudCat Whiskers Beard Competition is an Annual Charity Event that I host to raise money for those helping others. This year I would like to be able to donate a few thousand dollars to the Society. I am hosting a Regional Beard Competition to raise money for the Autism Society of Acadiana. This organization holds a special place in my heart, because they actually fill a need for so many families who have children on the Autistic Spectrum.

Many Beard Competitions occur late at night in a dark bar, which often limits attendance to Bearded Men and the ladies that love them. However, my event will be held in a Two Story private area of a Dat Dog in Downtown Lafayette. This space will allow me to further the Circus Theme by having face painters, balloon artists, and small carnival games and crafts for the kids.

The adults will be entertained by family friendly Circus Side Shows, Vendor Spaces, Live Auctions, 50/50 raffle, the After Party. and participating in Voting for their favorite Beard via the Facial Hair League App. The event will be closed with attendees enjoying the music of local artists, visiting vendor spaces, and having their pictures taken with their favorite contestants.
