Boat Cruise Benefit
Thrivent’s Dakota Valley Associates continue to bless us with their support as they hosted a benefit boat cruise for the Foundation on Thursday, June 21. The evening was perfect for many Szott Foundation long time supporters and new friends to enjoy a benefit cruise on Lake Minnetonka. Also joining the Foundation on the cruise was past recipient Kyle Levanen and his parents Grant and Sherri. Their words continue to inspire us and remind us what a gift we have to give.
This summer, six year-old Connor Ly and his family received the Szott Foundation’s 16th Gift of Time. Like the rest of our gift recipients, we remain inspired by the continued happiness and joy that Connor brings to those around him. To learn more about Connor’s story click here.

Two Christmas Gifts
This December we received applications for the 14th Gift of Time. After reading about the situation of two applicant families we knew in our hearts that both families were deserving of such a gift. So in this last month of 2011 the Foundation was fortunate enough to award both the 14th and 15th Gift of Time. The recipients were the families of Nevaeh Belker and Logan Collins. Check out our Recipients page to learn more about these families and their little angels.
The Gift of a Lifetime
The Andrew and Abby Szott Foundation is proud to have been the beneficiary of UnitedHealth Group’s 14th Annual Charity Golf Tournament held September 2011 at Majestic Oaks Golf Club in Ham Lake. At the tournament, players from UnitedHealth and its business partners came together to raise an unbelievable $476,120 for the Szott Foundation!
This gift will have a huge impact on the Foundation’s long term sustainability. The money raised from the benefit will allow the foundation to continue to deliver on its mission – to give families whose children are undergoing cancer treatment a Gift of Time to allow a parent to stay home from work full time to be with the child.
From the bottom of our hearts, the Szott Foundation would like to thank all of those from UnitedHealth Group and their business partners for giving us the gift of a lifetime.
