2nd Annual ‘Tom Bearson Foundation’ Fundraiser Saturday In Sartell
SARTELL - A fundraiser for the Tom Bearson Foundation will be held on Saturday. The 2nd annual charity golf outing is at Blackberry Ridge in Sartell.
Greg Bearson says the biggest project they've done so far is an $85,000 renovation of the school gym at St. Francis Xavier in Sartell.
We put in a new multi-purpose floor, some glass backboards, and we also put in all new lights. The previous gym was 22 years gold and it was starting to get run down.
Bearson says they're expecting about 350 people to attend the event on Saturday. Besides a golf tournament, the day includes a bean bag tournament, a silent auction and raffle, and live music. He says they raised about $25,000 last year, and they're hoping to top that this year.
Bearson says they continue to have regular contact with the Moorhead police department.
They've been absolutely wonderful to us keeping us advised and appraised of everything going on. But my wife Debbie and I we remain very very optimistic that they are making progress and that they're working very hard, and that some day soon we're going to get some answers.
Tom Bearson was killed in the Fargo-Moorhead area in September of 2014. There have been no arrests in the case.
