Guys with Ties

Guys with Ties, Charlotte, presented a check for $3000.00 to the Respect Ability Foundation on Wednesday, July 16th as one of their “select charities”.  Guys with Ties sponsored the “Cruisin for a Cause” charity event to benefit the Respect Ability Foundation.

John Houghton, Director of Membership for Guys with Ties, stated why their organization chose the Foundation as one of their select charities, “The Foundation has a great cause, and everyone has been exposed to bullying in one way or another. I was increasingly impressed with what they do when I got to see it in person. I think with the full year program they’ve designed is definitely making a difference in the lives of a lot of kids.”
