MAPA Golf Outing

The 4th Annual MAPA Golf Outing was held on August 14th, 2017 at the Bunker Hills Golf Club in Coon Rapids, MN. It was another full year of golfers and sponsors who enjoyed the great weather for the event. Together we raised over $20,000 for MAPA Member Scholarships! Thank you for attending and sponsoring the event!

Don Hall (Hardrives, Inc) & Charles Boan (Flint Hills Resources) initiated the MAPA Annual Golf Outing with proceeds used to create the MAPA scholarship fund. Since it was created in 2013, the MAPA Golf Outing has raised over $80,000 in scholarships for 52 recipients.
