The Men of the Breakfast is a powerful philanthropic group, providing members with exclusive access to unique experiences in Orange County. From one-of-a-kind car collection tours to exciting networking events, this group enables local business leaders to forge strong connections with like-minded individuals who support Orange County United Way’s work. Their collective support empowers our community’s most vulnerable families to transition from surviving to thriving.
WHO IS THE M.O.B.?
Founded in 2011, the M.O.B. has organic roots with a few tried and true United Way supporters who regularly attend the Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast. These members are staunch allies of the important work the Breakfast supports through United Way Impact Hubs, which serve vulnerable children and families in our community.
In the past couple of years, the M.O.B. has grown, becoming a catalyst for local business leaders to connect and create positive change. Members of this group get access to exciting events, such as Garages of Orange County, a recently launched series that provides incredible opportunities to see one-of-a-kind cars, meet and network with like-minded individuals who care about their community, and give back with big hearts.
