Whichever non-profit receives the most votes will walk away with $10,000 for its organization. Checks will be made out by each individual on-site and will be given directly to the charity. Each $100 donation is tax deductible. Founding members; Dave Harmon, Patrick Harbison, Greg Wellman, David Sobon, Cory Harris, Tim Harris and Shelby Elias Networking: The Council is envisioned to be a wonderful opportunity from men across various professional sectors to network and mingle. The goal is to provide long-term value to deserving causes - but also to have fun and create a socially and professionally viable atmosphere as well.
