100 Men Who Give a Damn donates $10,000

The Yellowknife Historical Society won big thanks to 100 "damn-giving" men of Yellowknife on Wednesday night, November 28, 2018. The "100 Men Who Give A Damn" group meets for an hour and jointly select a local charity or not-for-profit organization. Every man writes a $100 cheque to the selected organization and watch how the group’s commitment turns into a $10,000+ donation. Thomas Hall graciously nominated our Society, one of six possible winners of the night. Luck of the draw resulted in the Society's name being pulled, along with two other finalists. Society vice president Ryan Silke was invited to speak on behalf of the museum project, and explain what the $10,000 would be used for. The 100 men then cast a vote in favour of whichever three nominees they were in support of. And the Yellowknife Historical Society won!

Thank you to all the men who supported our nomination! The cash prize will be put towards lumber for interior construction of the museum building next summer.
