100 Men of Scugog
October Meeting Raises $5,250 for Durham Children’s Aid Foundation!
At the October 4th meeting, the 100 Men of Scugog presented 36 individual $100 cheques to Sian Gibson of Durham Children’s Aid Foundation. One man that was just at the Old Flame was so impressed with the presentation that he donated $50! Recently we met again with Sian and gave her money from some men that missed the meeting. Boy was she happy!
Everyone that night really had a great time while enjoying some craft beer. 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 October evening went smoothly with three organizations presenting. Once again we were well under the 1 hour meeting mark so there was plenty of time to get to a television to watch the start of the Jays game! Others stayed to enjoy some beers and meet new friends.
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:
