The 100 Launch
We are The 100 who Give a Damn
Are you 1 of the 100?
We want to help charities in Ireland meet their funding requirements in a real and tangible way.
We are delighted to announce the launch night of The 100 which will take place on the 27th February 2020 in House Dublin, Leeson Street, Dublin 2.
Some nibbles will be served to ease the hunger pains.
Event will be from 6pm - 8pm and you are welcome to stay afterwards for some social drinks.
The three charities that will be pitching on our launch night are:
HUG (Homes for Unwanted Greyhounds)
All are extremely worthy charities so come along and support them all.
We ask you to come along and support this fantastic charitable initiative and help us make difference.
How it works?
Think of us as Dragon's Den for charities - except someone always goes home with the money
Once a quarter, 100 people (or thereabouts) get together. 3 pre-selected local charities deliver 5-minute pitches detailing why their organisations need funds for specific projects. Members then cast a secret ballot to decide the winning pitch. Each charity that pitches on the night goes home with something, depending on number of votes each wins a share of the pot which is approximately €10,000. The breakdown is 60%, 25% and 15% The presentation is then followed by drinks, and the chance to learn more about each charity in a relaxed atmosphere.
How we do it?
Simply put we get 100 people into a room who are each willing to donate €100. We have three charities who each get a chance to pitch for the donations and a vote is taken after all pitches and the prize money is allocated based on number of votes.
Why should you get involved?
Our network is full of people who want to help. The more people who get involved the bigger impact we can make to the charities.
It is also a good fun evening with some great networking opportunities.
