Announcing 100 Men of Wilmot Who Give a Damn
100 Men Who Give a Damn founder, Mark Murray, at our November 2018 meeting.
Mark Murray would like to announce the formal creation of the "100 Men of Wilmot Who Give a Damn". The organization will mirror the 100 Women Who Care: Wilmot, meaning that the men's organization will meet four times a year, each member will donate $100 at each meeting, and then $10,000 will be awarded to the non-profit organization selected by the majority of the members.
Puddicombe House has once again generously donated their facility to host our quarterly meetings and the John Bear GMC dealership in New Hamburg has agreed to be our first sponsor.
If anyone knows a man in their life that would be interested in becoming one of the 100 Men of Wilmot Who Give a Damn, please have them contact Mark Murray at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-693-5400.
100 Women who Care Wilmot celebrated reaching our goal of 100 members at this meeting. With membership now around 110, as well as our Junior members, we are able to donate in the neighbourhood $11,000 to our worthy charities. Presentations from the Kitchener-Waterloo Sexual Assault Support Centre, the Bereaved Parents and St. Mary’s Hospital Women’s Cardiac Unit provided a varied evening. The K-W Sexual Assault Support Centre was our members’ choice.
Members heard a third presentation from Strong Start to Reading and voted them the recipient of our donation. St. Monica’s House and K-W Habilitation also presented.
Our spring meeting of 2018 focussed on the Arts with presentations from The Community Players, (TCP); the Drayton Theatre, and the Prime Minister’s Statues Project. The third time was a charm for the popular The Community Players
Our winter meeting offered a varied group of presenters: Front Door Carizon which provides mental health services for children and youth; Mary’s Place and a second presentation for the Community Players. Front Door Carizon was the members’ choice.
