Fling hatchets, raise money for men’s health at Urban Axes event
Because nothing says “charity” like flinging an axe and drinking beer…
Urban Axes Austin, where customers sling hatchets and sip beer for fun, will host an axe-throwing tournament, spiced up with locally-sourced snacks and beer, to benefit men’s health issues. The event is set for 6:30 p.m. Nov. 30 at the axe-throwing venue, which opened recently at 812 Airport Boulevard.
Half of all proceeds will benefit the Movember Foundation, which raises awareness for men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide. (If you’ve noticed a lot of mustaches this month, you can thank the organization. It encourages men to grow a mustache and raise money for the organization each November.)
Sponsors of the tournament include include Independence Brewing Company, Lagunitas, Austin East Ciders and Via 313. The event is open to ages 21 and up, moustache or no moustache.
Tickets are $40, and include axe-throwing, food, beer or wine and prizes. A spectator-only ticket that includes food and drink but no axe throwing, costs $20. Tickets must be purchased in advance online here.
