100 Airdrie Men Who Give A Damn are ready to jump into 2019.

The group meets four times a year to view presentations and vote on a charity they will be donating to.

"You get a hundred guys together once a quarter, everybody chips in a hundred bucks, that's ten thousand dollars. We have three charities come and present to us and we can vote to see who needs the money more. The successful recipient will receive a cheque for $10,000," explains Keith Wilkinson, co-chair of 100 Airdrie Men Who Give A Damn.

The group started up in October 2017 and has since raised $51,500.

Their first meeting of the year is on January 22, 2019, at Woodside Golf Course beginning at 7 p.m. Wilkinson says this meeting will provide a lot of insight into what the 2019 year holds.

"We will be announcing the date of the next meeting at our meeting, and we're hoping to actually have all the dates and locations scheduled for the rest of the year after this meeting."
