Chill Winston/Guilt & Co Movember Fundraiser
The Movember Calendar is back! Chill Winston and Guilt & Co are combining forces again to produce their 7th annual Movember calendar. The 2014 calendar theme is a**holes – people who are or could be considered as one. This will feature Guilt & Co’s staff members, a few regulars, and musicians captured in humourous, tongue-in-cheek a**hole scenarios such as: breaking up a long term relationship via text message, tying someone to train tracks, mocking the handicapped, or cycling on the sidewalk. The calendar will be available this weekend for $20. All proceeds go towards the BC Cancer Foundation.
Best Moustache Instagram Contest
For the month of November, Guilt & Co is running “Best Moustache” Instagram contest.
1) Come down to Guilt & Co and show them your sweet ‘stache.
2) Donate a minimum of $20.
3) Get your photo taken: Guilt & Co’s will post your shot on their Instagram account
4) Get all your friends to like your photo
The winners will be based on the number of likes. The top three entrants with the most likes will win three sweet prize packages:
1st prize: Custom Indochino Essentials suit ($449), Haircut & Shave at Fortknight ($60) and a Bar Tab at Guilt & Co ($75)
2nd prize: Haircut or Shave at Fortknight ($40) & A Bar Tab at Guilt & Co ($25)
