The 13 Ugly Men recently donated $13,000 towards the Children’s Dream Fund, and here is a nice update on the donations for two amazing kids.

Devan is 10 and has cancer. He lives in Port Richey, and is undergoing treatment at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. He will be enjoying a week at Give Kids the World with his family in December. Give Kids the World is a village in Kissimmee, created just for sick children. While Devan is there, he will enjoy all of the wonderful things at the village – swimming, putt-putt golf, the magic castle – and also visit all of the Disney-area theme parks. It is our most-requested dream, and he’ll be able to enjoy all of the special holiday activities as well.

Kayla is 11 and has had a heart transplant. She lives in Valrico. Her very serious heart condition was diagnosed in February, and unbelievably, they were able to get her a new heart the following week! She has been planning her dream ever since- a trip to Hawaii with her family – and her doctors have cleared her for travel on December 16. What a wonderful ending to a challenging year. If they continue to do well, it would be wonderful to include Devan and Kayla on the float in the parade.

$25,000 Donation to the Children’s Cancer Center

The 2014 Annual Halloween Party was a huge success, and the 13 Ugly Men raised $25,000 for the Children’s Cancer Center. The party was attended by over 1,800 guests, continuing to make Halloween one of the best parties the 13 Ugly Men throw.

The donation was to build a covered sports court for the Children, where they could play basketball under a covered area and other recreational games. The flooring is weather friendly & the covered awning is impressive, and it truly rounds out the entire remodel of the Center.

Event Chair, Chris Goolsby, has been growing and making the Halloween Event bigger and better over the past few years.

13 Ugly Men’s New President: David Moyer

In February of 2015, the 13 Ugly Men decided to make David Moyer the new President of the organization. He is one of the younger members in the group, and has shown a desire and passion for charitable work.

Meet the President:

David Moyer was born in Rochester, NY where he graduated from St. John Fisher College with Honors in studies of History and American Studies. While in college, he played wide receiver for the ECAC winning Cardinals Team. He moved to Tampa Bay in 2004 where he started working in Real Estate at Smith & Associates. He found his home in Hyde Park, and focused his real estate career with new development communities in the urban Downtown’s (Tampa & St. Petersburg). He currently holds the title of Director of Sales in the Developer Services division where he has closed over 1,500 homes and has been involved in the sales of over 10 different community sales. He has continued to work for Smith & Associates over the past 10 years, and believes it is the best real estate company in all of Tampa Bay.

David is very active and has a lot of interests outside of real estate and charity. He is truly involved in sports and activities, and you will see him always organizing games with his friends and peers for fun on a weekly basis. He says his grandfather used to organize all of the recreational activities at Kodak Park for all of the employees and that trait was passed down to him. “It started with basketball games and ultimate frisbee pick up games, and it has evolved into trying to do something new each week.” He calls the games, “The League Tampa”.

He also has a love for animals, especially dogs. As someone who grew up with litters of golden retrievers, he remains to have a strong bond with pets, and owns 2 terriers. He has a soft spot for animals and would love to see the 13 Ugly Men provide to charities that aim in helping dogs in need. Some of the other charities that he wants to commit to are centered around children and special needs, as well as senior citizens.

The 13 Ugly Men is a group that is founded around Partying for a Purpose, and like all members, David also does party. He says right now, it is quality over quantity though. He enjoys local craft beers, and states Coppertail Free Dive is his beer of choice. He has always been a tequila guy, but says whiskey is growing on him, especially an old fashion. He loves going to live music concerts and festivals, and his favorite band is Mumford and Sons.

David is committed to Tampa Bay, and wants to make sure all of the efforts of the 13 Ugly Men benefit the area. The events will not only benefit local charities, but they will be at great locations in the Bay area. His goal is create new signature events & enhancing the current ones, and to raise even more funds and donations for charities in need.

13 Ugly Men / July 4th Party for Southeastern Guide Dogs

The 13 Ugly Men put on a new concept for July 4th called the Red, White, & Brew. This was the first time for the party, and it was a huge success. Over 1,000 people came to Downtown Tampa and visited the new Ferg’s Live venue for a one of a kind party that featured unbelievable views of the Fireworks in Channelside.

The party featured live music and bands, and late night DJ. They had games available in the parking lot, as well as a Yogurtology mobile truck. Tito’s Handmade Vodka featured a one of a kind watermelon drink, with custom kegs made by Wikid Watermelon. Pepin had several different brew stations available for guests to try various beer options.

This party was put on for a purpose, as always with the 13 Ugly Men. They raised $13,000 for the Southeastern Guide Dog and the Paws for Patriots Program. http://www.guidedogs.org/about/our-programs/paws-for-patriots/

We appreciate all of the amazing donations, support, and overwhelming attendance.
