Folds Grand Rapids Receives Final Donation in Egan $100k Community Giveaway during Veterans Day Presentation
Folds of Honor is a nonprofit that grants scholarships to the family members of fallen and disabled service members. In 2016, local veteran Brad Laackman, along with Brian Heerdt and Jay Ofield, founded Folds Grand Rapids and organized its primary fundraiser – the annual Patriot Day Golf Outing. The event takes place each August and has grown annually in size and participation. Just last year, the organization was able to provide nearly $20,000 in scholarships. Today, the Grand Rapids chapter is working toward a $50,000 fundraising goal in order to create an endowment fund for local students.
