Reservations must be made by Friday, July 24 for a golfing event to raise funds for the Tom Bearson Foundation, which will take place Saturday, Aug. 22 at Blackberry Ridge Golf Course.
Those who don’t want to golf can still register for dinner and be eligible for door prizes and the chance to participate in a silent auction for many items.
Tom Bearson, 18, of Sartell, was found murdered in the Fargo-Moorhead area in September 2014 after being reported missing for three days. He was a student at North Dakota State University.
His parents and friends decided to start the Tom Bearson Foundation in his honor and to help carry on the things Bearson cares so much about. The foundation’s mission is to extend gymnasium playing times for young people, to enhance and expand the local youth basketball program, to give four scholarships (for two boys, two girls) to Sartell High School basketball players and to promote the safety of college students on and off campuses.
