Former NFL player and coach Harry F. Sydney, and founder of nonprofit My Brother’s Keeper (MBK), has accepted the inaugural $5,000 grant from Milwaukee-based Lucky Tiger, Inc., a men’s grooming brand, founded in 1935.
MBK, located in Green Bay, provides mentoring to troubled young men who lack necessary life-coping skills. On Thursday, August 22, 2019, Lucky Tiger presented its first $5,000 grant to Founder, Harry F. Sydney, on behalf of Lucky Tiger’s new “Men Who Roar” program. “Men Who Roar” recognizes the everyday heroes and humble men who make positive changes in their own communities throughout the U.S.
“Lucky Tiger’s funding assistance helps ensure that MBK will continue to be that trusted mentor for many at-risk boys and men in our communities,” says Mr. Sydney. For over 14 years, MBK has been committed to mentoring boys and men providing them the leadership skills they need to be productive members of the community.
Lucky Tiger President, Alan Murphy, Milwaukee, presented the check and thanked Mr. Sydney for inspiring men to do their best. “We are so excited to be able to support Harry F. Sydney’s organization and the Green Bay community and help change lives.
We at Lucky Tiger believe men deserve to look and feel their best. Our “Men Who Roar” goal is to recognize those “Men Who Roar” who are quietly making a difference in their own communities.”
Mr. Sydney adds, “This donation will provide individual mentoring sessions for at-risk boys and troubled men to lead them down the right path regardless of race, creed, color, or ethnic background. No one is refused services due to their inability to pay. On average, clients are able to pay only 30 percent of the cost of the mentoring sessions, leaving a shortfall of $35 per session. This donation will allow everyone to participate.”
