If I got it right and by 'some' you mean 'only a few', I think that the
fastest way to do what you want is to actually sum up to 100 and then
subtract the (few) values you didn't want to include in the sum


In a procedure:

    SumEx[f_, {k_, oth__}, exclist_List] :=
        Sum[f, {k, oth}] - Plus @@ (f /. k -> # & /@ exclist)


    SumEx[f[k], {k, 1, 100}, {2, 6, 8}]
