The 100 Fine Gentlemen of Oceanside Who Give A Damn, a group just formed in December, made their first donation to the community when they handed Inclusion Parksville Society a $9,300 cheque on Thursday, Jan. 24.
Kim Burden, who is also the executive director of the Parksville District Chamber of Commerce, made the presentation to Inclusion’s operations manager, Dawn McKee, along with co-members Royal LePage realtor Matt Breedlove and Town of Qualicum Beach Coun. Scott Harrison.
The formation of the new men’s group was inspired by 100+ Women Who Care Oceanside, which was formed in 2017 and has raised $220,800 for local charities as of November 2019.
McKee said Inclusion Parksville Society is honoured to be the first recipient of group’s inaugural donation. They were chosen out of three presentations made by members.
