Maybe you’ve heard of the 13 Ugly Men, or maybe you’ve heard about one of the epic parties they’ve been throwing around Tampa Bay to raise awareness and funds for local charities!  It’s no surprise that the 31 gentlemen who make up this award winning non-profit organization are the focus of this month’s charity at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa.  Continuing in their year-long commitment to support non-profits in the Bay area the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa is hosting a charity slot tournament and benefit concert on Friday, April 1st to benefit the 13 Ugly Men Foundation and you are invited!

"We are a proud organization of Gentleman who are blessed to be able to give back to our community in a non-traditional fashion", said David Moyer, President of the foundation whose motto is, “Party With A Purpose”.

The 13 Ugly Men Foundation found a way to give and receive!  They organize extravagant events where you can mix and mingle while providing an opportunity to support charity and grow our community. Named this year’s Children’s Dream Fund DreamMaker of the Year, they also earned the Champions for Children Award (2009) from Voices for Children, the Business Partner of the Year Award (2012) from Tampa Police Department, and were a Tampa Bay Lightning Community Hero Winner (2015).  Even more remarkable is the fact that none of the proceeds from their events pay for operational expenses! Annual donations from membership funds administrative costs, guaranteeing all proceeds from a 13 Ugly Men Event reaches the needs of the charity. Cheers to that!
