Tim Gaddis is the best known cheesemonger in Atlanta … bar none. In case you don’t know, he runs the cheese shop at Star Provisions in Westside. On any given day, you’ll find him roaming his little cheese shop handing out deliciousness. Well, right now – Gaddis, and a few other of Atlanta’s finest dudes, are participating in the Movember charity event and Gaddis has decided to raise the stakes a little.
First, the background: You can get all the details about Movember on their website, but here’s the short of the long:
Movember is a worldwide mustache movement to promote awareness of men’s health issues. Kind of like breast cancer month but for dudes. The donations go to the Livestrong Foundation and Prostate Cancer Foundation. The mustache is just a way to start the conversation. All the details, after the jump!
About Team Staches for Cashes
Team Staches for Cashes is headed by Gaddis, the Fifth-Group’s Michael Erickson, Burt Weiss of The Burt Show, Broderick Smylie of Savory Exposure fame, and a handful of others. Their goal is to raise $5,000 by the end of November and to date, they are up over 3k!

Second … the person who gives the most, gets back the most.
For the person who gives the most, Gaddis will throw a Cheese 101 party for you and nine of your closest friends! Now you do have to live inside the metro-Atlanta area … but that’s just about the only requirement. Here’s what you and your crew will get:
- Sex symbol Tim Gaddis at your house!
- 5 cheeses, personally selected by Gaddis, for your chewing and biting and swallowing pleasure!
- A cheese lesson from Gaddis himself where he will walk you through the basic styles and types of cheese.
As Gaddis put it: “After my Cheese 101 you will have the basic information to walk into any cheese shop in the world and make an educated decision about what you want. You will be able to talk cheese with your friends at the holiday party.” Sounds pretty awesome folks. So get donating over on mobro.co/cheeseman!
