Two families have been identified for the funds this year.

"We have a family in Santa Maria and we have a family in Ventura County fire.  The funds raised goes directly to them. Registration is open to the public, we are encouraging firefighters to sign up as well," said Santa Barbara City Firefighter Kevin Corbett.

This is also part of a contest with judging to take place December 2  from 5-9 pm at Topa Topa Brewery 4880 Colt St, Ventura.

There will be a categories for firefighters (each agency) and non-firefighters.

The contest is primarily for the six agencies, Oxnard City, Ventura City, Ventura County, Santa Barbara City, Santa Barbara County, and Carpinteria Summerland Fire Department Unions.

If someone in the public doesn't want to grow a mustache, a donation or a t-shirt purchase is helpful.

They are expecting more than 100 firefighters to be involved.
