Mustaches for Cancer

Each November, Cancer Support Community Rochester (formerly Gilda’s Club) raises awareness for men’s cancer health through our Mustaches for Cancer campaign. You can support the event individually or in a group – for example, as part of a school team, a fraternity, or a group of co-workers, family, or friends. By growing a mustache throughout the month of November, you can raise funds to support people facing cancer right here in the Greater Rochester.

We hope that this event can provide an opportunity to build camaraderie amongst your team during these unprecedented times that we’re living in, while allowing you to provide an invaluable service to our community.

Events at Cancer Support Community Rochester

In order to serve thousands of families each year – and because Cancer Support Community Rochester receives no government funding – we rely heavily on funds raised though numerous events that celebrate our members, educate our community, and showcase what Cancer Support Community Rochester is all about. All event proceeds stay here in Rochester to support those in our community impacted by cancer.

From annual fan-favorites to featured events, Cancer Support Community Rochester hosts some of the most unique and exciting celebrations in the area. Check out our calendar for upcoming events or see highlights from past events below. Feel free to contact Heather Rossi at or via phone at 585.432.9700 with questions or to learn more about how you can be a part of these events.
