NORTH DUNDAS — The 2019 edition of 100 Men Who Cares North Dundas goes ahead next Thursday, September 26 at the Winchester Arena and the organizing committee is excited to announce the participating charities. The complete list of each organization and a description of their project is published on the event’s website, www.100northdundas.com. In total, there are seven deserving organizations from North Dundas, all of which are working on important projects that will have a positive impact on the community:
- Boys & Girls Club (Project: Youth Tech Program at Dundas Clubhouse)
- Community Food Share (Project: Generator for Winchester Food Bank location)
- Dundas County Hospice (Project: Grief & Bereavement Program)
- Morewood Recreation Association (Project: Bathrooms at the Morewood Rink)
- North Dundas District High School (Project: Outdoor Classroom)
- North Dundas Minor Hockey Association (Project: Custom Mobile Rink Divider)
- Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation (Project: Commodes)
Along with a summary about each organization’s project at the 100 Men Who Care website is the total funding they are requesting. Each organization is permitted to ask for up to $10,000 and will be given a 3-minute opportunity to present their ask to the participating donors. Following the presentation, the men will vote for their preferred charity and the winning group will receive their full funding. The runners-up will receive any remaining funds, up to their request.
“This will be the fourth 100 Who Care event for North Dundas and momentum continues to grow,” said committee chair, Eric Duncan. “This evening will have a mix of new and returning community groups, all with exciting projects, and all deserving of support. It’s definitely going to be a tough decision for the 100+ men.”
Any man interested in supporting any one of these North Dundas community projects is encouraged to be part of the 100 Men Who Care. Although the event title is “100 Men”, the capacity of the venue can hold up to 200 people and there is still plenty of space. Participants can reserve a spot at the event’s website or register at the door. All attendees are required to bring with them a cheque for $100 (addressed to no one) or $100 in cash in order to vote, and all donors will receive a charitable tax receipt.
