Our meeting last night was a historic one for us as we joined with 100 Women Who Care in the first ever joint meeting between the two groups. In total, there was over 120 members present and 100 Men saw one of their biggest member turnouts to date. Thanks men! Another huge thank you goes out to the Celtic Hearth for going above and beyond with the food service, as well as two donors from 100 Women that donated $400 towards the food, and to Easter Seals for hosting the event. Finally, Definitions Health and Wellness Centre also provided free consultations to all members in attendance; a huge thanks to Mike Wahl!
I see your 3, and raise you 4.
Yesterday’s meeting was also special because instead of voting on 3 charities, that number was raised to 4, with each charity nominating 2 organizations each. 100 Men nominated the East Coast Trail Association and the SPCA St. John’s, and 100 Women nominated Heavenly Creatures and Kids Help Phone.
And the cheque goes to…
Ultimately, it was Kids Help Phone that was chosen as this meeting’s recipient charity. Congrats! And even better news is that their donation will come from both 100 Men and 100 Women members and is expected to surpass even the largest donations from either group.
Catch you in the fall.
100 Men’s next meeting will take place at the Celtic Hearth on 298 Water St. on October 22. We look forward to another great selection of charities and another great member turnout. See you then, men!
