With the start of our 14th year of fundraising as volunteers on behalf of the Impact-Cando Connection Fund, we were faced with making another decision about hosting our annual golf tournament in Cando, ND. Last year at this time, the Cando/Towner County area had not been touched with any cases or deaths due to COVID-19, and we knew that the responsible thing to do was to wait until the threat of this potentially deadly virus had passed, especially when gathering people from outside the area to travel to Cando to golf in our tournament. Since last year, unfortunately, there have been over 319 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 4 active cases, and 11 deaths from the virus in Towner County, and there are now four new variants circulating in our country posing an ongoing risk to residents and those traveling to the area. So with the historical and current data in hand, the Impact-Cando Connection Fund Advisory Board members have chosen to cancel the 2021 Impact-Cando Connection Fund Golf Tournament in Cando, and are launching the 2021 Caring Campaign in its place once again this year. Please consider making a donation to the Impact-Cando Connection Fund to help sustain the services and programming of the qualified charitable organizations in the Cando/Towner County area. We realize the charitable organizations serving the Cando area are still going to need grant monies for their organizations coming off a challenging year with unprecedented interruptions in some programming and services. We also realize that businesses, families, and individuals have each been impacted differently by this COVID-19 Pandemic, and we want to respectfully recognize that fact. With all of this information in mind, this is your invitation to participate as a donor for the Impact-Cando Connection Fund’s 2021 Caring Campaign this year. Should you wish to donate, please open, print and complete the donation form below and return it with your check made payable to the Impact-Cando Connection Fund, to the following address:
