100 Men Who Care on Maui to Hold Inaugural Meeting
By Maui Now Staff
Wailuku resident Keith Regan announced yesterday the formation of a 100 Men Who Care group on Maui.
The group’s first dinner meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 7, from 5:30 p.m. at Tante’s Island Cuisine in Kahului.
Inspired by 100 Men Who Care and 100 Women Who Care groups around the world, including one on Maui, Regan and other local men have joined forces to form “100 Men Who Care Maui.”
Its mission is to “bring together 100 men on Maui who care about local community causes.”
Four times a year, the group will meet for an hour and jointly vote for a local charity or not-for-profit organization. Each man agrees to write a $100 check to the selected organization–the group’s commitment turns into a $10,000 or more donation.
“We plan to do this four times a year and witness how $40,000 can improve the lives of our Maui community when placed in the hands of deserving grass roots nonprofit organizations working to serve the local community,” said Regan.
Men who would like to join the group’s efforts and are committed to helping others in our community but are stretched for time, want to be part of a powerful group of local men making an immediate, direct and positive effect on the lives of our neighbors, and want 100% of their donation to go directly to local charity are encouraged to attend the meeting by contacting Regan at 280-9284 or via email.
Tante’s Island Cuisine is located at 100 W. Kamehameha Ave.
