“Thank you all for participating in the seventh annual LeadingAge Minnesota Foundation Golf Fundraiser,” cheered Tournament Chair Dennis Anderson, Senior Vice President & CFO at Pathway Health, as he welcomed a happy crowd of golfers to celebrate after a day of fun, comradery and powerful fundraising. In total, thanks to golfers, sponsors, volunteers and ticket sales, the event raised over $60,500 before expenses.

“As many of you know, the Foundation supports initiatives designed to transform how we care for aging Minnesotans – including building the workforce of tomorrow, developing future leaders and furthering collaborations that transform the experience of aging,” said LeadingAge Minnesota Foundation Board Chair Bob Dahl. “This annual golf fundraiser specifically raises money to fund a statewide scholarship program available to all members of LeadingAge Minnesota and their staff. The money raised today will help those called to serve older adults advance their skills and find continued growth in their careers as caregivers.”
