100 Men who give a Damn
As Cypress Club president I am very privileged to be involved with the local group, “100 Men who give a Damn”. Where this group meets quarterly, and up to recently met at a local pub, on Tuesday night (11 December) this group, which now numbers 50 men had there first meeting at the Cypress Club (which I am hoping will be their new home base).
Many Cypress Club members belong to this worthy cause and I note Club member Dan (Frosty) Frost is a key organizer. Three different charities are identified to speak for five minutes, then each speaker is questioned. At the end of the presentations, there is a vote and one lucky group receives a $100.00 cheque from each member, or at this time $5,000.00. A tax receipt is subsequently issued and the additional benefit is the funds are immediate and there are no administrative fees. At this meeting, the lucky candidate was The Champion Centre, a very worthy cause.
With Christmas especially coming up I know all of those attending were more pleased than normal to be involved. If any male Club members are interested in joining, please contact me.
