100 Men of Scugog
July Meeting Raises $3,600 for Epilepsy Durham!
At the July 5th meeting, the 100 Men of Scugog presented 36 individual $100 cheques to Epilepsy Durham. Everyone really had a great time while enjoying some craft beer at The Old Flame Brewery. Giving this way is fun. Plus it’s quick, you support a local charity and you get to meet a number of big hearted community minded men. The July evening went smoothly and all the Men were thrilled to support such a worthwhile project. Once again we were well below the one hour meeting time and even had time for pictures and a short break. So we all had plenty of time to network while enjoying a few beers.
How did 100 Men of Scugog Start?
At a function at The Old Flame Brewery in Port Perry, one of the organizers of 100 Women that Care asked, “Why don’t the men do something like the women did?”
“What is it?” I asked?
“Well, the 100 women that Care Scugog get together 4 times a year to do something good for our community. There’s a process where we vote for a local charity. Each of the 100 Women write a cheque for $100 and the local charity gets $10,000 at the end of the evening!”
And, so 100 Men of Scugog was born. After one hour of asking the men in the room if they wanted to join we had 14! And from there it grew. It’s apparent the 100 Men of Scugog care about local community causes. Are you one? Join us by filling out a:
