As many of you know, our dear friend Kurt Saupe passed away in June 2012 after a long battle with leukemia. It was Kurt’s wish that something good come from his passing; he asked that we find a way to remember him by supporting the fantastic work of Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM), a non-profit organization that provides food pantry and other support services in West Madison, Middleton and Cross Plains.

So…we found a way.
The Kurt W. Saupe Foundation, Inc. proudly presents The Kurt, our second annual sports and music festival to be held June 13-21, 2014 in Madison. The Kurt is presented by our generous sponsors, Northwestern Mutual and The Policy Group, and offers a series of charity events to benefit MOM, including:
THE KURT GOLF TOURNAMENT

Please take a few moments to check out our site, learn about the events, and find a way to get involved in The Kurt! Registration information and tickets are available now at the event tabs, and we are looking for sponsors and volunteers to help make these events truly special. Space is limited, so please sign up today!
The Kurt honors Kurt Saupe’s legacy and provides critical support to MOM’s important work preventing hunger and homelessness. Last year, The Kurt donated $50,000 to MOM, but with your help, we can do better! Working with our generous corporate sponsors, the foundation is able to underwrite the costs of these events, so that 100% of participant dollars go to support the mission of MOM.
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you at The Kurt!
