Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Alum, Val Gittings Griffin, Class of 1994, along with friends and neighbors helps Baltimore don Fantasches in support of Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.
What started as a group of friends cutting out fumanchu mustaches from felt in their living rooms, grew to be the production of a hot item for Ravens fans. Fans can now purchase the Fanstache at local retailers for $5. $1 from every Fanstache is donated to The Living Classrooms Foundation. Over 2000 Fanstaches have been sold so far. Their goal? To donate $10,000 to the foundation by the “Chu-perbowl”. The Fanstache is available at about 30 retailers and now has an off-site packaging location. And how about seeing 70,000 Ravens fans wearing Fanstache Fumanchus at M&T Bank Stadium.
The group has a Youtube Video and was seen on WBAL TV 11 News. You can view the news spot here http://www.wbaltv.com/video/30142802/detail.html and a Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/#!/Fanstache.
