Foundation Purpose

The goal of the Michael Thompson Memorial Foundation is to raise education funds to support the children of families that are experiencing difficult circumstances similar to those Michael and his family endured. The vision is that families with young children that have endured a tragedy affecting a parent would have their future education supported and be touched by the generosity of others in honor of Michael.

Event Details

Similar to last year’s event, we will be using both the Eagle Vines and Chardonnay Golf Club’s courses. Golfers will receive a lunch, goodie bag, golf cart, admittance to the reception, and buffet dinner. While golfing, try your luck at winning a new car or $10,000 at one of our hole-in-one contests! At dinner, there will be a silent auction and a raffle with a wide range of prizes to give away.
