“Its For The Kids” is the motto of Burg Golf Open (BGO), an annual charity event to raise funds for organizations and facilities that provide services for children. Organized by the children of Leo and Clara Schaefer Burg and dedicated to their memory, the 16th annual event in July, 2013, raised $20,000 for the second consecutive year. Harvey Burg and Bede Burg Schmidt are shown presenting this year’s donation to Kathryn Stolpman, manager of Catholic Charities Emergency Services and Lisa Drew, manager of Catholic Charities Share the Spirit Program.
Share the Spirit program of St. Cloud, provides food and gifts of other needed items to children and their families during the Holiday season without regard to race, culture, or religion. In addition to Catholic Charities, proceeds from this year’s event were also donated to Sponsor a Family program in Minneapolis/St. Paul; Children’s Hospital, Pediatric Cancer Program, St.
Paul; Harmon Killebrew Hospice Home for Children Fund; and St. Joseph’s Home for Children, Minneapolis.
