Join us for the 2024 SFM Foundation golf events
Mark your calendars — dates are set for the SFM Foundation’s 2024 golf fundraisers.
These annual events are the biggest driver of funds for the foundation, which provides scholarship money for families affected by workplace injuries.
- The Minnesota event will be held Monday, June 10, at Prestwick Golf Club in Woodbury
- The Iowa event is set for Monday, May 20, at Hyperion Golf Club in Johnston
To register, visit the SFM Foundation’s website . Space at both events is limited — register early to reserve a spot.
Can’t make it? No problem! Sponsorship opportunities are available, ranging from $750 to $10,000-plus.
“The golf events are the SFM Foundation’s largest fundraisers of the year and it’s great to see all the support from our sponsors come through year after year,” Executive Director Lindsay Henningsgaard said.
SFM Foundation golf fundraisers
The 2023 golf events in Minnesota and Iowa generated $125,000 and $25,000, respectively.
Those contributions helped the SFM Foundation award more than $500,000 in scholarship funds in 2023, with 16 students benefitting. More than 125 scholarship recipients have graduated since the SFM Foundation’s inception in 2008. Scholarships are awarded regardless of the workers’ compensation insurer involved in the claim.
But beyond the financial benefits for scholarship recipients, the golf fundraisers give the students’ families a chance to come together and bond.
“It’s so rewarding to see all the support from the families each year,” Scholarship Director Debra Zorn said. “We value their participation and appreciate the community they have built.”
Lastly, keep an eye out later this year for information about the SFM Foundation’s fall events for 2024.
