"Movember" is a national organization bringing attention to prostate and testicular health. Starting November 1st, men grew out their mustaches for an entire month.

On Thursday night, organizers were celebrating their participation at the Empire Arts Center in Grand Forks. Tickets were $10 and all proceeds go to Movember.

This is Grand Forks' third year participating, and one man's handlebar mustache isn't just for show.

"Prostate Cancer is one of the leading causes of men's illness through the US. It's important to raise money for them too. I'm also investing in my own future. Someday I might need to use the funds I'm raising today," Movember participant Ian Dickmeyer said.

There was also live music and prizes at the event.
