Our Mission Is To Empower The Next Generation of Giving.


On the evening of the event, the three selected charities will pitch to the audience and the Shark, who will question the charities about their cause, organization, business model, impact, etc.


HOW DOES IT WORK?


  1. 10 volunteer committee members organize a charity event (1 x venue, 3 x charities, 3 x Sharks, food & drink).
  1. Each committee member invites at least 10 of his or her friends to make a $100 pledge (or more) to attend the event (10×10… get it?) creating a pool of at least $10K.
  1. Upon arrival, each attendee is given ‘Charity Dollars’ equal to the value of their “Pledge.”
  1. On the evening of the event, the three selected charities will pitch to the audience and Shark who will question the charities about their cause, organization, business model and impact, etc.
  1. Each attendee then decides directly who they want to give their ‘Charity Dollars’ to.
