If you're known to sport a stylish beard, and you like raising money for great local charities, there's one South Dakota competition you shouldn’t miss. Some of the best beards in the Sioux Empire and beyond travel to Bottoms Up in Corson for this annual event dedicated to sweet facial hair.

The South Dakota Beard Clash is not only a competition but also an event to raise money for local Sioux Empire charities. Each year the Falls Facial Hair Foundation selects a charity to donate proceeds from the South Dakota Beard Clash. This year, the Falls Facial Hair Foundation chose to support the Teddy Bear Den.

Men with long beards, fashionable mustaches, and bold costumes competed in one of the largest beard competitions in the nation. Money from raffle tickets along with live and silent auction items went directly towards the Teddy Bear Den which supports  economically disadvantaged pregnant women in the Sioux Falls community.

If you missed all the wild beards from the South Dakota Beard Clash, check out these pictures that you just have to see to truly believe how wild they really are!

Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon and Townsquare Media Sioux Falls

Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon 2022 Presented By Jerry's Auto Sales: Sept 29 and 30

For fifteen years Result-Townsquare Media Sioux Falls has been helping raise money to help fight childhood cancer.

Sadly, more than 11,000 children will be diagnosed with various forms of cancer this year. Instead of being able to just be a kid, these children will be learning about the serious experiences of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and hospital or clinic visits.

The money raised through Dining for Kids and the 2022 Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon stays in the Sioux Falls area.
