I had the pleasure of offering event staging services for 100 Men Who give a Damn. 100 Men Who Give a Damn Halifax is an organization that involves close to 250 men within Halifax that come together quarterly to help local charities.
It’s a great concept, four charities have 5 minutes to pitch why their charity should receive the money gathered during the evening. I should go back…each member contributes $100 during each meeting. Right after the presentations by the charities the men vote and a cheque is presented to the charity that received the most votes. When all members are present the contribution is over $20k! At this last event the Kids Help phone Halifax received over $16K and that amount can go up ad absent members send in their cheques.
One of the main organizers, Neil Stephen, felt that the group would benefit from more networking after the event and that setting up the venue with some lounging areas and cocktail tables would provide a better atmosphere, to compliment the already existing cash bars.
Feedback was great, Neil felt that it was their best networking event, tightened up the space, and that the set up did exactly what he wanted…created a better space and atmosphere for the event.
It was a fun event to stage. My goal was a sophisticated “man cave” networking space. I used grey leather furniture, modern black chairs, Noguchi style occasional tables and décor rental pieces were made from metals and woods to give it a very masculine feel.
