SFM Foundation holds fall event; 2023 golf events planned

The SFM Foundation’s in-person fall fundraising event returned in November 2022 after a two-year hiatus, and the results surpassed expectations. The event took in nearly $35,000, an astounding 75% above the $20,000 goal. Taking expenses into account, this results in approximately $15,000 for the Foundation’s scholarship program.

The event was hosted at the Westin Galleria Edina and included wine, beer and cider tasting, raffles, holiday shopping and a week-long virtual silent auction.

“It was wonderful to see so many returning supporters and all the new faces at this year’s event,” said SFM Foundation President Linda Williams. “The sponsors, liquor partners, donors, vendors, volunteers and attendees all played an important role in us exceeding our fundraising goal. You truly helped make a difference in the lives of the students and families impacted by work tragedies.”

Williams and the rest of the SFM Foundation team are already planning next year’s golf events. Mark your calendars for Monday, June 12, 2023, at Prestwick Golf Club in Woodbury, Minnesota, and Monday, May 22, 2023, at Hyperion Field Club in Johnston, Iowa.

The SFM Foundation provides scholarships for students whose parents were seriously injured or killed while working for Minnesota or Iowa employers. SFM Foundation is an affiliate of Kids’ Chance of America  in Iowa and Minnesota, and is also known as Kids’ Chance of Iowa. To learn more about the cause, visit sfmfoundation.com .
