The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund has donated over $35,000 back into the community in the past three-years. The fund’s only fundraiser is the annual TFred Memorial Golf Tournament held each August. This year’s tournament will be held on August 11th at the Nishna Hills Golf Club. Petty says they are still actively looking for hole sponsorships and silent auction items.
