Annual Golf Tournament 2018
The 2018 Tournament is now history (with a few photos above capturing the essence), planning is already underway for the 2019 Tournament.
This year's tournament drew 80 players and another 15 dinner guests. It netted just under $8,000 for the Foundation - just part of the over $233,000 raised in all by the golf tournaments! Foundation President Judy Ayers described the challenges faced by the Foundation. And South High Athletic Director Amy Cardarelle talked about the challenges faced by South High and the entire district.
Meanwhile, the South High Foundation is having its 24th Annual Jim Bloom/Golf Tournament on Friday, June 21, 2019 at the Crystal Lake Golf Club in Lakeville, MN.
Our committee conintues to reach out to graduation classes, local businesses and individuals for golfers, hole sponsorship, volunteers and prize donors who have continued to make the tournament a fundraising success on behalf of the Foundation.
Details about costs and arragements for next year's tournament will be available as the time draws near.
Please contact Mike Feriancek or anyone on the committee. You can also look for our table at the SHF Pancake Breakfast to resume again in April and at the Spring Alumni Luncheon in May. Please consider starting or ending your class reunion week/weekend by participating in the annual golf tournament.

Here is Chairman Mike Feriencek's 2017 summary:
"Just a note on the results of the golf tournament.
We took in $15,463. Our expenses amounted to $9111. So our proceeds ended up to be $6352.00 from the event. (Later news: We auctioned off (on-line) two late arriving items this past weekend. We raised an additional $350!! And the winning team donated their winnings ($120.00) back to the football team, reducing the expense noted above by that amount.)
So, you might ask - how does that compare with previous year's? Here is what data I have available to me:
- 2013 - 90 golfers - Jim Bloom did the final numbers - so I don't have them
- 2014 - 98 golfers, 31 dinner guests - $8182 proceeds to the Foundation
- 2015 - 84 golfers, 32 dinner guests - $6781 proceeds to the Foundation
- 2016 - 89 golfers, 22 dinner guests - $7061 proceeds to the Foundation
- 2017 - 73 golfers, 14 dinner guests - $6351 proceeds to the Foundation
The feedback from the golfers was overwhelmingly to hold it again at Crystal Lake GC; I will move forward with establishing a date with Crystal Lake GC for next year."
