Celebrity Movember at Byron at Byron

The 25th of November at The Byron at Byron will see many mustachioed men, and their supporting ladies, enjoying the inaugural Sports Charity Lunch as a culmination of the Resort’s month-long support for Movember. The delicious three course meal will be graced by celebrity sports stars and feature an auction of money-can’t-buy prizes. Proceeds will go to the Movember charity to raise awareness for men’s health including depression and prostate cancer.

Celebrity sports guest speakers include legendary NRL coach Wayne Bennett, Peter Jacobs who recently finished second in the grueling Hawaii Ironman Triathlon and ex-professional world famous surfer Wayne "Rabbit" Bartholomew. Other sports persons who will be interviewed on the day and sitting amongst the 120 guests include Trevor Hendy and Karla Gilbert two of Australia’s all-time great Surf Life Savers and ex-NRL player and commentator Ben Ikin. Network Ten’s Brad McEwan will act as MC, overseeing the auction of prizes with all proceeds going to Movember including private dinner for two with head chef Gavin Hughes, a complete spa indulgence package, a round of golf with the resident professional at the Byron Bay Golf Course and a NRL State-of-Origin jersey signed by all players from the 2011 series.

Tickets to the event hosted in The Restaurant at The Byron at Byron are $95 with $5 from each booking being donated to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health. Tables of 8 and 10 are available for bookings. It promises to be a great celebration for all those who have cultivated their mo’s throughout November and all their other-halves who have had to put up with them! Seats are limited! Alternatively, book a weekend for two including two night’s accommodation in a Standard Suite, buffet breakfast daily and two tickets to the luncheon for $495 per person.

The Byron at Byron will be supporting Movember for the entire month with male staff growing moustaches and seeking sponsorship. Other Movember fund-raising initiatives will see the ‘Mo-Burger’ and ‘Mojito’ served in The Restaurant and ‘From Mo’s to Toes’ spa treatments available in the Spa and Wellness Centre.

Since the first annual ‘Movember’ in 2003 The Movember Foundation has raised an astonishing $170+ million to continue to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health. They seek to educate men about the health risks they face, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment, specifically in regards to depression and prostate cancer. Many more men are expected to join the 1.1 million who have registered with Movember in the past when they will clean-shave their faces on 31 October.

Clearly an important cause, it is no wonder that The Byron at Byron, a resort and spa that promotes well-being, has got involved with Movember. Set within a stunning subtropical rainforest The Byron at Byron Resort provides an idyllic escape in a relaxed atmosphere whilst offering all the special touches you expect. The spacious resort comprises ninety-two one-bedroom suites set within forty-five acres so you truly have the space you need to unwind. Stroll the boardwalks to nearby Tallow Beach, enjoy daily yoga or simply retreat to the resort Spa & Wellness Centre for the ultimate indulgence.
