Finding Happiness with Brad Petrinec
Brad Petrinec is the founder of Murder City Facial Hair Crew and the Circus of Whiskers. He founded these groups because as a recovering heroin addict, one of the steps is to give back and help others. He chose the Detroit Animal Welfare Group to give back to because it’s a charity already close to his heart and had volunteered with them in the past.
The Circus of Whiskers is a fourteen category facial hair competition. There is also carnival games that the group has made that embraces their club and their culture. They are all hand-built by each member of the club. A lot of people come in from out of town and Brad really wants to show them Detroit and what the city has to offer. Brad has made a lot of friends through competitive bearding and his favorite part of the events is seeing his friends have a good time. Making others happy and being able to give back to the Detroit Welfare Group is what makes him feel the best.
