Over 10 years strong, Guys With Ties Philanthropy of Orlando is excited to take things up a notch in 2016 and do what it does best: Put the fun back into fundraising. Guys with Ties is a nonprofit organization that was founded in Orlando in 2005 by eight young professional men committed to making a difference within the community.
Now, the board of directors continues its mission to partner with and raise money for local charities that focus on the special needs of the Central Florida community. This is done through the planning of exciting, themed parties throughout the year, which have included the popular Costumes for a Cause Halloween costume party fundraiser, Hope for the Holidays toy drive event, the upcoming White Party Fashion Show and many more.
The board of directors includes lawyers, doctors, engineers, entrepreneurs and sales executives. Their common bond is the will to give back to the community that has given so much to each of them.
Total donations raised from Guys With Ties events are approximately $500,000 and growing. The organization has supported numerous Central Florida causes including Project Walk, New Image Youth Center, Autism Speaks, Make a Wish Foundation, BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation, Page 15 and UCanSki2.
Guys With Ties is looking forward to partnering with Street Team Movement for the White Party Fashion Show on Saturday, August 6 at the Amway Center’s One80 SkyTop Lounge. The event will feature numerous prominent personalities as guest models. Street Team Movement works to restore hope to individuals impacted by homelessness by providing basic needs such as showers, clean laundry, remedial aid and a higher quality of mindfulness in an effort to motivate individuals to progressive movement.
Looking ahead, Guys With Ties is energized to make an even bigger impact in the coming year and to continue putting the fun back into fundraising.
