About the 13 Ugly Men Foundation:
Our Mission: To support the Tampa Bay Community through hands-on Volunteerism efforts and large-scale events that raise awareness and funds for local charities. The 13 Ugly Men first appeared in the Tampa area in the 1990’s as a group of 13 Founding Members who hosted fantastic parties and wanted to improve our community by giving back. By encouraging Tampa Bay to “Party with a Purpose,” the reputation of the original 13 grew steadily, and by the late 90s, they were ready to take the next step. In December of 1998, the 13 Ugly Men Foundation was incorporated in the State of Florida as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Over the subsequent years, the Foundation has raised well in excess of two million dollars for deserving charities and causes around Tampa Bay. 13 Ugly Men donate to all causes and needs which makes them unlike any other 501c3.
