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! Why don’t the Men start one?”
And, so the idea of starting a 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 on the 3rd Tuesday of January, April, July and October. At each meeting, we listen to 3 local charities who present for 5 minutes and answer questions for 2. The guys secretly choose one 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, are stretched for time, but you can spare 4 hours per year
- want to be part of a powerful group of local men making an immediate, direct and positive effect on the lives of our neighbours. Where else can you get your $100 matched by 99 other big hearted friends?
- 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!
