Record number of Foundation scholarship applications, golf event fills early

The SFM Foundation received a record 48 scholarship applications this year.

"It's great to see that the word is getting out about the SFM Foundation," said SFM Foundation President and Board Chairman Dave Kaiser. "We want the opportunity to help as many students as we can."

Kaiser noted that five of the applications came from Iowa, a significant achievement considering the Foundation just began awarding scholarships there in 2016.

Minnesota golf event fills early

The Foundation's 10th annual Minnesota golf event is already full for golfers, and registrants are now being put on a waitlist.

"We're grateful that so many supporters want to be part of the event," Kaiser said.

There are still openings for the Iowa golf event scheduled for June 4 at Echo Valley Country Club in Norwalk.

So far, a total of $108,750 has been pledged in sponsorships for the Minnesota and Iowa golf events and fundraising efforts are continuing.
