SAFE: Conference Events and How to Get Involved

The 2018 SFMA Conference in Fort Worth is expected to be our best yet, and to prove everything really is BIGGER in Texas, the SAFE Foundation is determined to have your week full of BIG exciting events.

SAFE, SFMA’s charity, conducts a variety of fundraising activities during the SFMA Conference to raise funds for scholarship, education, outreach and research. The continued success of these fundraisers is credited toward the generous donations from SFMA members. But all the fun won’t be possible without your help!

How can you help, you ask? Easy. Donate! It is impossible for us to do this without you!

1. Donate for the silent/ live auction
2. Donate for the raffle
3. Make a cash donation to The SAFE Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization.
4. Become a supporting sponsor for the Topgolf event
5. Sponsor a bowling lane

Who can participate in the bowling event?

Whether you’re competitive or not, guests will have free range to form teams or bowl individually. We encourage guests to have some fun with it and form teams based on chapter, state, category or any other combination! There will be prizes for top team and individual bowler.

The event will be open to all conference attendees! Pricing will be $75 per person, with $40 of the cost contributing to SAFE’s scholarship and education outreach programs. Bowling, shoe rental, food and drink ticket will be included.

What is the Topgolf event?

No golfing ability? No Problem! Every attendee at our tournament can play – golf pro or novice. For those who are new to the game, the pros at Topgolf will provide best-in-class instruction in a fun, high energy, non-intimidating atmosphere. Our avid golfers can tap into their competitive side all while having more time to check out the drink menu due to Topgolf’s self-scoring technology.

Players will be playing in a tournament play environment as individuals. There are up to 6 players per “bay” area – so if you wish to have players placed together, please let us know! There will be medals given out to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners as well as additional prizes to be won. Pricing will be $135 per person, with clubs, food and drink ticket included.

Auctions: How to donate!

If you would like to donate an item for the live or silent auctions, we ask that you fill out our Donation Form. Any donated items can be mailed to SFMA Headquarters at the address provided above or left at the main conference registration desk with SFMA staff members. We would love to share with you the amazing prizes we have in store as we get closer to the event, so please consider mailing donated items prior to the conference.
