It’s time again to make a difference for those trying to create “forever families”!  We’re back for the 6th Rod Simons Golf For The Gift of adoption Celebrity Golf tournament. Once again, we’re fortunate to tee-off for another great day at gorgeous Troy Burne Golf Club in Hudson on June 27. We raise needed funds to support grants from the Gift of Adoption Fund, which will directly impact local Minnesota families, allowing parents to reach that “financial finish line” and create their own “forever family” through Adoption!

Once again this year, Golf for the Gift has relied on Datastream Connexion for the website, social media, and mobile app management.  We appreciate another year to serve for a great cause.   We look forward to seeing you on the course!

A cairn is a manmade pile of stones, often in a conical form. They may mark the summit of a mountain or a memorial. Placed at regular intervals, they indicate a path across barren terrain or climbing routes. The Jon Francis Foundation (JFF), like a cairn, provides knowledge and acts as a guide to others who find themselves unwilling travelers on an unfamiliar path.

Get the JFF app to:
- Find speaking events for the foundation
- contribute photos and audio from races and events
- have access to missing persons resource information
- get alerts for missing person information
- keep up to date with foundation efforts 

We are proud to continue our support for the Jon Francis Foundation.
