Our Current and Past Missions
In 2015 and again in 2018 the BGFA was proud to provide donations to support The ChadTough Foundation. The mission of The ChadTough Foundation is to fund research and raise awareness for Pediatric Brain Tumors with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
2016 - Starr Detroit Academy
The BGFA and Starr Academy formed an alliance in 2015. The BGFA committed to assisting Starr Academy in a number of areas. The BGFA helped to establish a summer education program, establish an athletic program and provided academic support. Proceeds from the 2016 BGFA event in June 2016 went to support Starr Detroit Academy. Other BGFA fund raising activities also supported the cause.
George Sahadi Memorial Scholarship Fund
In 2017, the BGFA established the George Sahadi Memorial Scholarship Fund. The George Sahadi Memorial Scholarship is awarded by the BGFA to a deserving high school or college student athlete with the goal of providing assistance to families of BGFA members. A portion of the proceeds from our BGFA Gathering events helps support the scholarship. In 2018 at the BGFA event, two scholarships were awarded to two deserving student athletes.
