Each year in early November, benevolent members of the community are nominated for this coveted award. The rules are simple: nominees choose a charity, raise funds for that charity, then join Fort George for the Magnanimous Mug Award on Tuesday, November 28th. More donations are gathered at the event, tallies are taken, awards are handed out, and all of the funds raised go directly to those charities that night.
This year, Fort George will generously add donations to the charities of the top three fundraisers – matching up to $10,000 for first place, up to $5,000 for second place, and up to $1000 for third.
This date is the regular PopUp Happy Hour for local charities that PUUFers have been supporting for the past year; this is a chance to support a cause that we are deeply interested in. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the Lower Columbia Hispanic Council won this award?
