A majority of the money will be donated to the Roger D. Larsen Scholarship Fund at Dakota State University, in Madison, S.D. The rest of the money will be donated to other charitable foundations supported by the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
“We would like to thank all the golfers who participated and we look forward to an even bigger event next year,” said Skyforce owner Mike Heineman. “We are thrilled to honor Roger’s legacy with this annual event and he would be proud of the generous donations from our sponsors, season ticket holders and fans.”
