Simon Partnerships, Two Summer Events Generate $350K in Support for SYF

Summertime is the season for golf and backyard
get-togethers, and this year Simon served up both . . . with a generous, orange
twist.  Simon employees and corporate
partners hit the links at Legends Golf Course in Franklin, Indiana on June 27th
for the 7th Annual Tees for Education, and they gathered again to mingle and
soak up summer on July 12th for the 3rd Annual Founders
Celebration.  The two events combined to
generate $350,000 in support for Simon Youth Foundation!

Founders Celebration attendees also had an opportunity to
experience the true impact of SYF on the life of an individual student when
they met Brandon Pressley – a 2013 graduate of
Simon Youth Academy at Opry Mills. Brandon’s story captivated Simon employees
earlier in 2014, and his presence this summer was a pleasant surprise for SYF’s
founders, founding board members and most steadfast supporters. 

At SYF, every penny raised is put to good use.  Every $1,000 raised is celebrated, as it
builds capacity to serve one more student. $350,000 raised brings impact at a
level that’s almost difficult to imagine. 
Through the generosity of Simon employees and corporate partners, two
events alone will completely support 350 students from enrollment in a Simon
Youth Academy through graduation day.  350
students like Brandon will have brighter futures. That’s the #PowerOfOrange!
