Superior Health Foundation seeking golf partner for 2015

Posted on by dave

Are you a non-profit with a health-centered mission? If so, the Superior Health Foundation is interested in partnering with you on an upcoming event.

The Superior Health Foundation annual fundraising golf event will be held this summer (time and date to be announced shortly) at the Red Fox Run Golf Course in Gwinn. Proceeds from the golf scramble will benefit SHF and a health-centered non-profit in the Upper Peninsula that’s carefully chosen by the SHF Special Events Committee and endorsed by the SHF Board of Directors.

In 2014, the Superior Health Foundation partnered with the Upper Peninsula Children’s Bereavement Network to raise funds for Camp STAR, a weekend bereavement camp at Bay Cliff Health Camp for children across the Upper Peninsula who have experienced the painful loss of a loved one. The event raised $18,000, with half of the proceeds going to fully fund Camp STAR in 2014.

In 2013, the SHF partnered with the Superior Alliance For Independent Living (SAIL). More than $15,000 was raised, with half of the net proceeds being awarded to SAIL to purchase kayaks and adaptive seats, enabling those with disabilities the opportunity to kayak all across the U.P.

The Special Events Committee will screen submissions and will give high priority to health-centered initiatives or projects (under $10,000) that benefit a large geographic population across the U.P.

The Superior Health Foundation will accept applications through Friday, February 6, 2015, with the intent of selecting a non-profit project by mid-February. An application form is available on the home page of the Superior Health Foundation website (www.superiorhealthfoundation.org). Applications can be filled out on-line, faxed to 906-225-6916 or submitted via mail to the Superior Health Foundation, Attn: Executive Director, 121 N. Front St., Marquette, MI 49855.

The Superior Health Foundation is proud and honored to stand alongside other health-centered non-profits as we strive to improve the care of the underserved of the Upper Peninsula.

Those with questions are asked to call the Superior Health Foundation at 906-225-6914 or email shf@superiorhealthfoundation.org.
