Beards and Mustaches Everywhere: Throwback Thursday!

Last week, we blogged about our beginnings, but this week we are going to throwback to an event that we always love having at the Music Farm. This year was the 4th Annual Beard and Mustache Competition at the Music Farm. You may ask yourself….what exactly is this event all about?  First, it is a benefit for Low Country Women With Wings(womens ovarian cancer charity). People are allowed to register for the competition and purchase spectator tickets. There are different catergories for the competitors to sign up for. Check out the list below! We really look forward to hopefully hosting next year’s event and helping raise money for Low Country Women With Wings.
