The Annual HUNT for Mr. RUFF has been paramount in boosting the RUFF brand in Vancouver. The HUNT for Mr. RUFF is a Personality, Popularity, Performance and Fundraiser Challenge where annual Candidates coveting the annual title must strip for VOTE and DONATION for HiM - Health Initiative for MEN.
RUFF is entering its 7th year in 2018 with 4 RUFF events at The PINT and a new RUFF Black events series at Celebrities Underground. While RUFF has been held in Seattle and Victoria since 2013, there is no current plan for RUFF outside of Vancouver in 2018. The focus will be placed on the local brand.
After 17 years and 80+ special events on our portfolio, we helped raise over $168,600* in cash and $29,750* of in kind donations to various local non-profit organizations.
Our goal is to provide our community and its allies an affordable, competitive and memorable event experience they will look forward to return to. Our events would not be what they are without the contribution of dozens of volunteers, venue staff and contract workers who put countless amount of hours at various stages of the planning, production and execution of our events to deliver and help them grow in popularity year after year.
