ST. CLOUD -- Konrad's in downtown St. Cloud hosted a Novembeards Party on Tuesday to celebrate the end of "No Shave November" and to raise money for Relay for Life.

Every November, men are encouraged to let their facial hair grow to raise awareness for cancer.

"The turnout's been great," says Konrad's owner, Guy Sprenger. "Great community support, thing have turned out well.

The night featured live music and entertainment, a live auction, and a best beard competition.

"I think it's a pretty successful night," says Scarlette Revolver, who helped in the planning of the event. "Hopefully it'll continue to grow and we can keep doing it every year and make it bigger and better."

Ryan Schepp sported one of the best beards of the night and says it was a celebration of beards, but also a celebration of community.

"It's a perfect example of how St. Cloud is so connected," Schepp says. "I think it's pretty neat to see the community come together for a cause."

If you missed the Novembeard Party, you can still donate to Relay for Life on their website.
