EveryStep’s fundraising events support the Foundation in support of the nearly 30 programs across EveryStep’s services.

Your participation in our events through ticket purchases and attendance, sponsorships, and in-kind donations contribute to helping to serve over 70,000 Iowans annually.

Events throughout the year include Sip, Savor & Support, the Amazing FundRacer, and the Good Grief Golf Open.

Sip, Savor & Support is our signature fundraiser hosted annually each fall. This event includes delicious food, good drinks, networking, and socializing to support all EveryStep programs. Attendees have bid on unique Iowa experiences like farm-to-table dinners, a wind turbine climb, gourmet dinners prepared by local culinary students, floral bouquet-building workshops, and VIP experiences for live music at an Iowa farm. Participants come for the mission, but the food and atmosphere are not to miss!

Do you have what it takes to overcome our Amazing FundRacer? Recruit your team of 2 or 4 and take on our fun and exciting course. Participants race against the clock and each other to master challenges that represent one of EveryStep’s Care & Support programs. Challenges that take place around the city, ending with a celebration you won’t want to miss! Drinks for all and prizes for the top finishers are included in this unique fundraiser to support more than two dozen Care and Support programs.

The Good Grief Golf Open supports Amanda the Panda and Grief and Loss Services of EveryStep. In a four-person best ball-style tournament, take on 18 holes to see who can emerge victorious. The day includes lunch, games, challenges, and awarding of top prizes. Enjoy the holes and support grief and loss supports for children, teens, and adults at all stages in the grieving process.
