Midlands Community Foundation raised more than $37,000 at its 30th annual golf tournament at Platteview Country Club on Monday, May 23.

The funds raised at this year’s tournament will continue to endow the Children in Crisis Field of Interest Fund created at Midlands Community Foundation last year.  This fund will address a range of issues affecting children in Sarpy and Cass counties, including but not limited to basic food, shelter, child abuse, and educational and artistic enrichment opportunities.

The mission of Midlands Community Foundation is to benefit the diverse needs of the Sarpy and Cass county communities by providing financial support, involvement and service.  Over the last 30 years, the Foundation has served as a leader by helping to identify community needs and partnering with corporate and individual donors to make the most of their charitable dollars.  The Foundation has a strong commitment toward prevention and education in the areas of health, art, culture, community, education, economic development and human services.
