100 Men of Scugog
Congrats to The Kelly Burger Legacy Foundation selected April 2021 Charity of Choice!
Covid 19 continues to challenge all of us. But one thing it’s done is shine a light on some big community hearts. And many are right here, in the 100 Men of Scugog.
Really great presentations from all the charities! It was tough and a tear jerker for some. Brooklyn did a wonderful job. Keep an eye out for this young lady! The money will go towards an endowment fund that will be invested through the Foundation in perpetuity. The interest from that investment will be used every year to help fund important cancer care equipment and research at Lakeridge Health and the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre in Oshawa.
Although donations during COVID are optional, we’ve been impressed by the number of men who keep giving to the community when we need them most!
Want to join in the fun while giving to your community? It’s only 4 hours per year. Come join us! You get to meet other big hearted, community minded men.
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:
How it works in a nutshell
We gather for just one hour every three months. At each meeting, we jointly select a local charity or not-for-profit organization and write a $100 cheque (per person) to the selected organization. No committees, no bank account, no fees.
- are committed to helping others in our community, but are stretched for time
- want to be part of a powerful group of local men making an immediate, direct and positive effect on the lives of our neighbours
- want 100% of your donations to go directly to local charity
- want to learn more about the many worthy community service programs and organizations servicing Scugog
Join us and become “One” of the 100 Men of Scugog!
