Mill Steel Company’s Golf For Kids’ Sake Event Raises over $200k for Big Brothers Big Sisters
July 26, 2017 8:57am

The partnership between Mill Steel and D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s (DABSJ) Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) program dates back over 20 years. The program and the mission it serves of helping kids and their adult mentors improve their personal lives along with build lasting relationships, is near and dear to our CEO and Chairman, David Samrick. Over the years, fundraising and support of BBBS has become a staple in the philanthropic identity of Mill Steel, specifically through our annual Golf For Kids Sake Event (GFKS).

Through the generosity of our friends and business partners, to date, we have been able to donate over $2 million to DABSJ! This year alone, GFKS raised over $200,000.00 in support of BBBS! The money raised from this event helps support current matches and pair hundreds of kids with new mentors – that’s thousands of lives helped on their path to success!

Another key aspect of the event is the award of the Harry Samrick Scholarship Fund to one young adult in the BBBS program. This scholarship covers the recipient’s cost of tuition to a local college and provides them the opportunity to continue their schooling. This year’s Harry Samrick Scholarship winner was Kayla, who plans to attend Grand Rapids Community College in the fall to pursue a degree in social work so she can help others.

Thank you to all that donated and helped make GFKS another great success!
