MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- Those with mustaches and beards had their day in the limelight Saturday.
Capital Brewery in Middleton hosted the Midwest Mustache and Beard Wearer's Championship. Awards were handed out for best, "freestyle" facial hair and longest beard, among other categories.
Organizers of the competition said people came from all over the country to take part.
"We've got a guy from Guam here," said Ryan Lammey, of the Beard Wearer's Union. "There are people from Texas, California, Minnesota and Ohio."
"It really brings people together," he said.
All proceeds from the competition benefited Madison's non-profit Porchlight Inc., which helps Dane County's homeless population. Wake Up Wisconsin anchor Dani Maxwell was one of the judges of the competition.
