Mountain FM is teaming up with the Lion's Head Pub and Andrew Sheret to make Movember 2012 the biggest men's health month the Kootenays has ever seen.

The Mountain FM team has raised over $800 so far with morning show co-host John Helm leading the fundraising efforts with $350 in donations.

Andrew Sherett Ltd. has raised more than $4,000 themselves and their corporate head office has raised $16,000 throughout the province.

The big event ends on Dec. 1 with a big party at the Lion's Head Pub. The Movember party features live music from local band Such Great Madness and lots of prizes.

"It's a friendly competition to get more money for Movember," said Lion's Head co-owner Troy Pyett. "So we're having a party on Dec. 1 with a live band and all the proceeds from the door will go to Movember. We'll have prizes for the best moustaches and that type of thing. We'll also have some door prizes and announce the final fund raising tallies."
