100 Men Who Care – Los Alamos, a group of men dedicated to providing immediate and meaningful financial support to local organizations, will be holding its next quarterly event Thursday, October 10 at the Sheriff’s Posse Lodge from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Organized like a “Shark Tank” for nonprofits, the event is only 90 minutes long and in that time the group votes on one of three organizations to support based on short presentations by each. Each group member then writes a check for $100 directly to the winning organization. In prior events, LA Cares received $4000 to purchase fresh vegetables for their food bank, and Self-Help received $4700 to support victims of domestic violence.
The event is modeled after the successful Los Alamos group for women. The two organizations coordinate events and nonprofits eligible to apply in order to “spread the wealth.”
The 100 Men Who Care – Los Alamos group is open to all men interested in participating. Each member commits to contributing $100 once a quarter. In addition, members may nominate their favorite local charity. For more information and to sign up, visit www.100menwhocarelosalamos.org.
