Our Legacy

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 90’s, 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. Currently comprised of thirty-one (31) members, the Foundation is led by its Board of Directors, currently numbering six, including the President.

The 13 Ugly Men are proud to operate the Foundation with a 0% administrative overhead, which means that none of the proceeds from our events are used to pay for any operational expenses incurred by the Foundation in the normal course of business. Private donations, received annually from each member, ensure that 100% of the proceeds from our events reaches those in need.

Recent Awards
The 13 Ugly Men have been honored with numerous awards throughout the years, including the Champions for Children Award, the Business Partner of the Year Award, and the Tampa Bay Lightning Community Hero Honor.
