The usual mustache bash tends to involve woefully hirsute guys who get bored and decide to grow out the hair on their upper lip as a quick gag.
But for the Abington Township Police Association and other county employees, their mustaches are anything but a joke.
Or, rather, were a joke.
On Friday, they kicked off Copstache for P.A.L., a fundraising campaign designed to benefit the Abington Police Athletic League. It marked the culmination of a forty-five-day mustache-growing contest.
If they raised $10,000 dollars, they would shave off the facial hair.
They ended up getting more than $15,000—well surpassing their mark.
Abington Police Chief William J. Kelly, a proud ‘stache owner for more than thirty years, even buzzed his off for the sake of the kids in PAL.
