Annual
Golf Tournament

When golf great Gary Player finished designing the Raven Golf Course, he was left in awe by its scenery: “I have yet to see a course that compares with this one for mountain beauty.” It’s only appropriate that such an incredible golf tournament be held in such inspiring scenes. The Snowshoe Foundation Golf Tournament is a four-person best ball tournament. Prizes for standard golf tournaments are provided along with a live auction that will leave you salivating over the items. Great Golf, Incredible Course, Quality Food and Drink, and Wonderful Prizes – You’ve got to experience the Snowshoe Foundation Golf Tournament!

Holiday Toy Drive

Many local families can use a helping hand, especially during the holiday season. A toy can bring joy and hope to the life of a child. The Snowshoe Foundation invites individuals and businesses to donate to our annual Holiday Toy Drive, which honors the life of a great leader, our dear friend and community member, David Dekema. Direct donations for our 2021 Holiday Toy Drive will be accepted throughout the year. We welcome your participation. We humbly thank you for your decision to donate holiday joy to local children during this year's season of lights.

Ice
Dinner

Each February, the Ice Dinner provides the best live entertainment, incredible food, and the most fun that can be had on the mountain. Whether you’re enjoying the company of those in attendance or trying to win one of the many auction items, the Snowshoe Foundation puts on a magical evening. One of the best ways to donate to the Foundation is to secure your tickets today and attend the Ice Dinner. It may just be one of the most magical evenings of your life.

Being a Good Neighbor: Addressing Challenges to Help Local Families

“The Snowshoe Foundation strives to be the good neighbor to families in the local communities that surround us. It is a privilege to live in this area of the state, yet some unique challenges exist that highly populated areas do not deal with. There are multiple needs that our smaller communities face, and the Foundation prides itself on helping these communities and the families within overcome these challenges. Stronger communities are better for everyone. Whether rebuilding a fence around a local baseball field, helping provide funding for local food banks, supporting healthier lifestyle events, or supplementing higher education scholarships, the Snowshoe Foundation is dedicated to being a good neighbor during good times, as well as difficult moments.”
