Staches For Slive

In 2018, the athletic department at the University of Arkansas created “Staches for Slive” in honor of Mike Slive and his legacy. Coaches, staff, and athletes grew out their mustaches in an effort to raise awareness for prostate cancer and fundraise for prostate cancer research.

 This year, we continued these efforts by expanding Staches for Slive in recognition of Men's Health Month. Participants, we're asked that they take a picture of their mustache, (whether it’s real or fake) and hashtag #StachesforSlive on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.

 All participants were entered into a drawing to win a VIP experience to the Mike Slive Invitational in December, where Auburn’s men’s basketball team will be competing against St. Louis’ men’s basketball team at the BJCC in Birmingham, Alabama. The drawing was open from November 1st, 2019, to November 29th, 2019. The winner was announced on the last day of the month.

 On November 16, 2019, there was a Staches for Slive event at Cahaba Brewing Company. A percentage of beer sales from 1-5 were donated to the Mike Slive Foundation. If you were unable to attend this event, we ask that all of our participants consider donating to the Mike Slive Foundation.
