You are a man. You are probably going to go out one or more times a week and have some manly drinks, eat some manly food, and watch or participate in some manly sports. Why not do it where your money will help a worthwhile organization? One of the easiest ways to help needy organizations is to attend their events. However, there are so many out there, and so many of the same old thing – walks, wine tastings, you get where I am coming from. We want beer, chili, poker, golf, cars, and so on.
We will filter through all the events and list as many of the more man-friendly events as we can find. And since we men don’t plan ahead, expect only the next month or so. Events are identified with the man-friendly and man-approved elemnts for an event we would want to attend. Obviously the more ingredients the better the prospect with 3 or more being a virtual slam dunk for a perfect man event.
