Charity Awards Given
The Sam’s Hope Foundation was established in 2012 in memory of Rolland “Sam” Kolve. To keep Sam’s memory alive, his parents, who now live in Lincoln, MT, organized the Sam’s Hope Foundation of Montana and began raising money to help families who have children fighting cancer in the hopes that someday there will be no more children who have to face cancer and that a cure can be found.
Since the inception in 2012, Sam’s parents have raised money through donations, raffles, cars shows, and several other events here in Montana. They have gifted over $50K to help families that are currently battling childhood cancer and other childhood illness with any expenses that may incur. They have also gifted $38K to help elderly and those in need residing in the Lincoln, MT community. They also give a yearly scholarship to graduating members of the senior class where Sam attended high school in Great Falls MT and Lincoln MT. And, they have also recently established an annual award given to 6th, 7th & 8th graders who have improved scholastically and helped with local community events.
Sam’s Hope Foundation of Montana will be hosting their 1st Annual Sam’s Blackfoot Valley Chainsaw Competition Fundraiser in hopes of making an even bigger difference in providing financial assistance to families who have a child with cancer or illness by helping the family with any cancer and illness related expenses they may be facing during their fight to win. In hopes of making an even bigger difference in providing financial assistance, this charity fundraiser event will be held at their hometown family restaurant, Lambkin’s, on July 13th-16th .
