In addition, Leon Stevens from PPI Corporation is shaving his beloved moustache on Friday 30 November 2012 for charity.
Leon has never shaved his moustache off in his life. Now there is a great cause to do it. His mother passed away a few months ago to bone cancer, and Leon is hoping to raise $5,000 for the Cancer Council.
The big moustache shave will take place following the Australian Pipeline Industry Association (APIA) Brisbane Christmas lunch function. This will be held in an area outside the ballroom of the Hilton Brisbane on Level 5.
