FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Florida Everblades donned both "Sticks and 'Staches" for a good cause Friday night. Men, women and children proudly sported their 'staches to raise awareness for mens' healthcare.

"Mustache Me" encourages men to talk to their doctors about prostate exams.

Organizer Scott Strachan said, "pPeople get a kick out of it...I definitely don't wear a mustache all the time, so it's unexpected but a lot of fun."

Nine dollars from every ticket sold will go to 21st Century Care and Mustache Me of Southwest Florida. A few Everblades players plan to grow their real mustaches during November to show their support.
