Confero Sports Foundation Mixer Fundraiser for Multi Sports Complex

Posted: Updated:

Do you love sports?  Do you support tourism in Great Falls?  Are you interested in boosting the Great Falls economy through large sporting events?  If you answered yes to any of these questions you can help – and have fun in the process.

The Confero Sports Foundation is hosting their annual fundraiser on Wednesday, May 11.   This year, the Foundation is dedicating the Mixer as fundraiser for the Multi Sports Complex to support much needed improvements to the Complex.  The softball community is partnering with the City in an effort to raise funds for Multi Sports facility improvements including replacing backstops and dugouts on fields 1 – 4 as well as infield leveling.  According to Confero Sports Foundation Chairman Keith Schnider, “The Foundation is excited to concentrate their efforts on a specific project this year, in order to make a significant impact for the Great Falls community.  The Multi Sports Complex serves as a recreational facility for youth, high school, college and adult softball programs and is a catalyst for bringing softball tournaments to town, having a significant economic impact for Great Falls.”

Funds raised by the Confero Sports Foundation are used to ensure a long term commitment to the major sports events held in Great Falls and to offer support to other potential sports events looking at our community as a destination. 

For the past 35 years, the Confero Sports Foundation has raised funds to promote major sporting events in Great Falls. Total contributions from the Foundation equal $278,008 and another $10,000 is committed to future events.  The goal of Confero is to provide financial support for major sporting events, attracting thousands of fans to Great Falls for two or three days benefiting the community with entertainment and revenue.  The Confero Sports Foundation has traditionally underwritten divisional and state high school basketball tournaments which Great Falls would be unable to successfully bid without the support of the Foundation.  Confero has also financially supported many other sporting events and is working toward bringing new major sporting events to Great Falls.
