The Metropolitan Pogonotrophy Society presents the 9th annual Showdown at the Southern Gates Beard and Mustache Competition. A charity event that supports the Tennessee Wildlife Federation's Hunters for the Hungry Program. Each dollar raised provides meals to those in need while also providing opportunities for hunters and wildlife enthusiasts. The competition consists of 12 categories representing all types of facial hair included categories for women to compete in our realistic and creative categories. Beards and mustaches of all lengths and styles are represented and we strive in providing a category for all types of facial hair. We'll also have a silent auction, vendors, and all around good time for all that attend. Even if wary about competing, come and show support in providing for a great cause. We hope you see in July and we have many more surprises to come.
