Benefiting the Regiment Fund for TOM HOUSE Tom of Finland Foundation


APRIL 26-28, 2024

Friends of the Regiment:

As you may have heard, the men of the Regiment of the Black & Tans are celebrating our 50th Anniversary in style! Rather than just have a fabulous dinner at a spectacular location (like we did for our 35th, 40th and 45th), we are spreading out the festivities for an entire weekend!

Our 50th Anniversary gala event salutes the tradition of the MANEUVERS WEEKENDS of the past while celebrating the Regiment’s members past and present and their achievements over five decades of community service. We also will honor outstanding community leaders and Regiment supporters.

In 2019 at our 45th Anniversary, the Regiment established the REGIMENT FUND FOR TOM’S HOUSE at the TOM OF FINLAND FOUNDATION to provide a much-needed separate source of funding for critical maintenance, preservation and improvement of Tom’s House. This need continues and at our 50th Anniversary we will solicit donations and event sponsorships so that proceeds in excess of costs will go to replenish the Fund. Amounts received (up to$5,000) will be matched dollar for dollar by a generous employer of one of our team members, so that up to $10,000 can go to the Fund to pay for needed electrical, roofing and numerous other repairs at Tom’s House. See the description of sponsorship benefits on the next page and please consider helping us add to the Fund for Tom’s House. Another way clubs and supporters can help is to buy ads in our program booklet which will be distributed during the weekend.

All contributors and sponsors will be listed in the program booklet and on our website!
