Golf Outing

More information on this year’s event

Team Shaan’s longest running event is its annual Golf Outing. This event started at Charlie Vettiner Golf Course and has really matured over the years into a premier signature event. Whether you enter a team, show your support as a sponsor or join the group for lunch or dinner, it’s a day to catch up with old friends and forge new relationships on the links. The Golf Outing’s revenue continues to grow each year and is the anchor event that helps to fuel the foundation’s giving capabilities.

Past Events

Team Shaan Running Group

Kosair Children’s Hospital Running Group – Through a partnership with Kosair Children’s Hospital, Team Shaan manages and leads a running group. This group is open to all ages and is a fun way to train together for the Kentucky Derby Festival Triple Crown races and the Kentucky Derby Festival Mini-Marathon/Marathon. Individuals and teams raise money during the months leading up to the big race by reaching out to their family and friends to ask for support or organizing smaller fundraising events. The collection of efforts makes a big difference in the overall success of this program. Raising money for a great cause and staying in shape, what could be better!

Monte Carlo Night

In Team Shaan’s infancy, the Monte Carlo nights were the talk of the town! Hosted at the Jeffersontown Community Center, hundreds of Team Shaan supporters poured through the doors to try their luck.

Center for Women and Families Celebration

Team Shaan’s first big fundraising commitment was part of an $11 million dollar comprehensive campaign for the Center for Women and Families new campus. Team Shaan committed to raising $50,000 to build an Adolescent Room. As the total dollars raised neared its goal, a celebration reception was held in the parking lot of the new Center. One by one, each board member shared their personal story of Shaan followed by a moving video that recapped that tragic day. Pledges began rolling in and when it was all said and down, Team Shaan was able to raise a total of $65,000!

Thunder Over Louisville

There were more than just fireworks flying at this party. The Derby season kicked off with a bang at Preston Pointe where attendees enjoyed a “home base” in the heart of all the action.
