100 Men of Kawartha Lakes
100 Men of Kawartha Lakes Selects Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes as the Dec 2023 Charity of Choice!
As 100 Men meetings go, this was the biggest and most ground breaking one I’ve ever been a part of!
With over 150 guys and a $5,000 donation from Kinsmen, the night resulted in $20,000+for local charities.
Congratulations to the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes for being selected December 2023 charity of choice. They took home $8,900 that night and there’s more to come.
Thank you to Globus Theatre and the United Way for have strong and entertaining presentations. Thanks to Kinsmen, they each received a cheque for $2,500. Not bad for a 5 minute presentation and an hour meeting!
Thank you to the Omemee Legion for hosting! And what great food! Love these Legions!
In other business Laurie Dillon-Schalk gave a presentation about our local Community Foundation. After a vote, we have decided to embark on a new partnership with them! In our quest to keep what we do simple, giving donations will now be even easier. They will be assisting with some of the financial and administrative parts of our growing group. Best of all, it means our receiving charities are no longer burdened with the administrative effort and cost of writing and sending out 150+ tax receipts. Win, win, win.
It was such a feel good night, hanging out with a bunch of big hearted people supporting their community. Does it get any better than this?
Thank you to all who donated door prizes!
