Let it Beard! The competition is on.

With the tagline " With Great Facial Hair Comes Great Responsibility," it's obvious that the Vancouver Facial Hair Club takes its role seriously.

On June 3rd, the club hosts its 3rd annual Facial Hair Competition in support of Men's Mental Health Awareness.

Designed to raise funds that awareness for men's mental health initiative, all proceeds from the Gastown event will benefit the Vancouver based organization HeadsUpGuys, while bringing together some of the city's most prolific facial hair aficionados.  They will compete in 12 catagories, ranging from best beard of 12 inches to build a beard. Open to both men and women, the latter category invites participants to craft their own fake beard.

Putting the whole thing together is the Vancouver Facial Hair Club, founded by Garrett Resler in 2013, the club's mandate includes promoting a positive image for facial hair, and fostering a sense of community among growers and beard enthusiasts.

The Facial Competition takes place on Saturday, June 3rd at 4pm, at the Lamplighter Public House in Gastown. Spectator tickets are $10 at the door, along with competitor tickets for $20.
