Bloomington, MN – The SFM Foundation recently announced that its in-person fall fundraising event returned in November 2022 after a two-year hiatus, and the results surpassed expectations.
Nearly $35,000 was raised for the Foundation’s scholarship program, an astounding 75% above their $20,000 goal.
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.
