In celebration of Giving Tuesday, the Tucker Community Foundation is launching a new fundraiser to support charities working in Randolph County.
The Foundation will host The 100 Club, a special night of giving, from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27 in The Randolph Room located at 1863 Grill & Isaac Jackson Hotel in Elkins. Tickets are $100 and ticket holders can win up to $10,000 for their favorite Randolph County charity.
“We’re hoping to have at least 100 of our friends, supporters and local philanthropists who care about Randolph County and want to give back to it attend The 100 Club,” said Kelly Stadelman, development director of the Tucker Community Foundation. “At $100 a ticket, if 100 folks come, we’ll be able to raise $10,000 for one hard-working charity in just one night.”
Every ticket holder who attends The 100 Club will be asked to nominate one Randolph County project, program or organization they think is deserving of the cash prize. Halfway through the evening, five of the nominations will be selected at random. For every nomination selected, the Foundation will ask the ticket holder who made the nomination to make a quick, two-minute pitch as to why their nominee is deserving of the prize money.
After all five pitches have been heard, every member of The 100 Club will vote on which charity should receive the prize money. The organization with the most votes will win.
“In just two hours, members of The 100 Club will be able to make meaningful impact in Randolph County,” Stadelman said. “It could be helping a children’s program get the funds it needs to finish a project or supporting a local food pantry so they can get the shelves stocked for winter.”
Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be provided along with a cash bar.
