Byron Community Foundation Fundraiser April 5, 2024

It’s almost time for the Byron Community Foundation’s Craft Beer and Wine Tasting fundraiser. This year’s Foundation Festival event, celebrating the 11th anniversary of the foundation is from 6:30 to 10 p.m. on Friday, April 5, at Somerby Golf Club in Byron with our “Grand Prize Drawing” for a 2023 Club Golf Car at 9 p.m.

The annual event raises money for the Foundation’s General Fund, which in turn enables them to distribute to viable projects within and around the Byron community along with grants to local grantees, business entrepreneur start up and local organizations. Come and enjoy music, craft beer and wine along with appetizers throughout the evening.

Those attending must be 21 years and older unless they are recipients of grant requests accompanied by their parents.

Advance tickets are $35 with tickets $40 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online athttp:llbit.lylbcf2024.

The Byron American Legion is selling raffle tickets for $100 each with only 300 tickets sold.

At last year’s event, the Byron Community Foundation was able to provide ten grantee requests totaling $10,000 to local organizations in and around our community.

The Foundation is a tool for the philanthropy of individuals, businesses, and other organizations that have a desire to make a lasting contribution and impact on the community. It is organized as a fund of the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF) and is a vehicle for donors who wish to make a charitable contribution.

The Foundation was organized in July of 2013. Come to the event on April 5 and help the Foundation help the community.
