Q4 - October 2023 Platinum Meeting Sponsor: Old Buckers Hockey Team
The Old Buckers are a rec league hockey team - the longest running in Airdrie actually! They started in 1975 and have been skating ever since. Aside from just enjoying the game of hockey and each other's company, the Old Buckers have a community presence as well. Most recently they held their first annual Old Buckers Tournament Draft and raised over $8000 for the Kalix Foundation. The team is a big fan of what the 100 Men do and just wanted to support our efforts.
Thanks Old Buckers! If we see you out for after-game drinks, next round's on us!
One of the key features of the 100 Men initiative is to be able to pool money and give a large, lump sum to an organization. For several recipients, this is the largest lump sum they will receive and not something they can normally generate with their regular fundraising activities.
However, unless we receive surplus donations, it does mean that we have to allow two other worthwhile groups leave empty-handed. Our voting is often very close and it is difficult to choose only one recipient. That is why, starting in 2022, we have developed a Sponsorship package that will allow one Platinum Meeting Sponsor (to help supplement the main donation, up to $10,000) and up to four Gold sponsors for each meeting (which would go to the two runner-up presenters no matter what). As always, any funds above $10,000 are split between the two runner-up presenters.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor Please contact our Sponsorship Coordinator Darcy Forbes
Aside from these monetary donations, we're always interested in door prizes to give out to members attending the meeting. In the past we've had gift cards tolocal businesses, apparel, in-kind services and more. The generosity of these donations is incredibly welcome and really adds to the meetings as a way to show appreciation to our members. Door prizes can be brought to any meeting, or coordinated ahead of time with any of the Board members.
Thank you to our previous meeting sponsors!
