Beards for B.U.C.K.O 2023
In 2019, the Toronto Chapter, the Ontario Southwest Chapter, as well as the Lakeshore Chapter of the Bearded Villains began hosting a charity event called “Beards For B.U.C.K.O”
Our family-friendly event consists of a variety of craft beers, a facial hair competition, a bike show, a raffle, and a “patch hunt”, as well as many carnival-type games, with all proceeds going to Camp B.U.C.K.O (Burn Camp for Kids in Ontario).
Camp B.U.C.K.O is a fun, safe, and caring camp program free to kids ages 7 to 17 with burn injuries. Their services encourage campers to participate in a variety of social, recreational, and therapeutic activities that promote self-esteem, the development of leadership skills, and foster personal growth. Camp B.U.C.K.O is volunteer-run and depends on donations to provide this great service.
This year’s event is being held on July 8th, 2023 at Blackburn Brewhouse in Niagara Falls, ON.
We are hoping to make this event bigger and better than the previous years by adding several new games and activities.
