Golf Tournament 2019 Update
To our wonderful family and friends,
We're so proud of the work our community has provided our foundation over the past eight years, and we will continue finding ways to partner with donors and to help individuals and families fighting with addiction.
This year, after much contemplation and some tough decisions, we've decided to suspend the 2019 golf tournament. The event is entirely family-run and we've found ourselves in a place where there's not enough bandwidth between us to take on the tournament and make it as successful as it can be.
We're looking to broaden ways of reaching out to the community and helping those struggling with and impacted by addiction. We'd love any suggestions or thoughts you have! If you so choose to donate on our website, 100% of our proceeds always have and always will go towards helping those in need.
We thank you for your ongoing support and hope to announce another event in the near future!
Over $275,000 Donated
Since The Dan Baker Foundation was established in 2011, we've raised over $275,000 and have donated to Project Turnabout in Granite Falls, Life Right Outreach Program, various Minnesota drug courts, foundations, and local men and women sober homes.
