BMM Employees attended The Briad Group 21st Annual Charity Golf Outing on September 12, 2019. This year, BMM sponsored two tees as well as a journal ad, proceeds from the outing went to The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. We were honored to be able to participate and give back to The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Initiated in 1999, this event has grown every year in charitable donations. In total, nearly $4 million has been donated to charitable organizations because of this event. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, which is a Wendy’s charity (started by founder Dave Thomas who was adopted as a child), has received more than $2 million from the golf outing efforts.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is the only public nonprofit charity in the United States that is focused exclusively on foster care adoption. For more than 25 years, the Foundation has continued its pursuit of Dave’s goal of finding forever families for children in foster care. The Foundation provides grants to adoption agencies to hire recruiters who use an evidence-based, child-focused recruitment model to find loving, permanent homes for children waiting in foster care.
The Foundation works closely with child welfare advocates and policymakers, provides free resources about foster care adoption and raises awareness through social media campaigns, public service announcements and events.
