Local men are ‘working it’ — and talking a whole lot of trash

A group of Dayton men are “working it” for a local nonprofit that serves those seeking work.

Clothes That Work’s fourth annual Men At Work competition has 24 Dayton area men from a range of fields competing to be crowned the organization’s ambassador of the year.

The men are far from cookie cutter and range from salon owners to attorneys. 

“We try to pick people from different walks of life,” Bill Perry, Clothes that Work’s marketing and communications manager, said. “This is what success looks like. It looks like 24 different guys.”

Voting for the month-long competition wraps up at 11:59 p.m. May 18.

Each vote is $5 on the Clothes That Work website.

There are three stages with awards for each:  “First Impressions,” “Workplace Image” and “Casually Cool.”

Photos are being posted on the Clothes That Work website of the men expressing each category. 

“Each week we tell people to tell you a little bit more about themselves,” Perry said.  

Perry said the contestants have gotten it to it. 

“These guys are talking smack against each other,” he said. “It is so much fun to work with them.” 

Last year’s campaign raised $27,000 through voting and sponsorship. 

Clothes That Work hopes to raise even more this year, Perry said.

“At $5 a vote, we have some pretty generous people coming through our website,” he added.

Clothes That Work provides training as well as interview- and work-appropriate clothing to about 1,300 people annually. 

While many think of it as an agency that services mostly women, Perry said the opposite is actually the case.

“We serve more men than women,” he said. 

Men At Work competitors are Charles Baerman; Shawn Bauman; Ben Bergman; Kevin Cornell; Ken DeMange; Aliou Diouf; Justin Howard; Jacob Hynes; Brent Johnson; AJ Kessler; Rob Krause; Tom Maher; Sean Mitchell; John North; Stephen Offord; Peter Qumsiyeh; Josh Schierloh; Shelby Shackelford; Bill Slowden; Chris Southern; Josh Stuckey; Jonathan Thompson; Bill Twiss and Rodney Veal.

Panera's pink-ribbon bagels to raise funds for breast cancer awareness

Brianna Chambers contributed to this report.

Panera Bread Co. is teaming up with local organizations to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.

During the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the company will sell its signature Pink Ribbon Bagel, a twist on the Cherry Vanilla Bagel, a mix of cherry chips, dried cherries, honey, vanilla and brown sugar. A portion of the proceeds of the Pink Ribbon bagel will be donated to local nonprofits across the country. 

Erin Barnhart, community relations manager for a Panera Bread franchise based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, said each participating market has its own breast cancer partners.

"The partner really does make a difference," she said. "We appreciate our local partners, as their support can make all the difference in achieving our goals of building awareness and raising funds for treatment and research."

Panera has more than 1,600 locations in 41 states and the District of Columbia. 

Select markets offer a 100 percent donation day, during which the entirety of that day's sales of Pink Ribbon Bagels is donated to breast cancer focused organizations, according to Panera's website.

In Dayton, Ohio, proceeds will be donated to local nonprofit Pink Ribbon Girls and the Miami Valley Hospital Foundation.

"We make this campaign a priority every year for a reason," said Sam Covelli, owner and operator of Covelli Enterprises, the Ohio-based franchisee of Dayton-area Panera Bread restaurants. "The funds raised by the Pink Ribbon Bagel are helping to save the lives of local women with breast cancer. There's no better feeling than knowing you can help make difference."

Pink Ribbon Girls provide free direct services to patients and their families undergoing breast and other women's reproductive cancer treatment through their programs.

Mikki Clancy, chief operating officer of Miami Valley Hospital, survived breast cancer and said she benefited from the services of Pink Ribbon Girls and the hospital.

"Pink Ribbon Girls and Miami Valley Hospital were a godsend in my treatment and recovery," she said. "Supporting these community assets serves hundreds of local patients in their fight against cancer."

Twelve participating West Virginia area Panera locations will donate to Susan G. Komen West Virginia.

"We are so excited to partner with Panera Bread for the sixth year to raise funds and awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness month," said Donna DeHart, executive director West Virginia Susan G. Komen. "The Pink Ribbon Bagels are always a big hit with our survivors, volunteers, grantees and supporters. Money raised from the October campaign will be used to provide uninsured and under-insured West Virginians with life-saving screenings and awareness."

According to the Panera website, the franchise has raised tens of thousands of dollars for breast cancer partners through Pink Ribbon Bagel campaigns in the past 10 years.

"It's not a hard sell," Barnhart said. "People want to be involved in whatever way they can. That's what's so great about the Pink Ribbon Bagel. People might say, 'I can't write a check, but I can buy a bagel.'"
