Making A Difference

Special Events

Reconnect with the AYF and support the mission at the same time!

In 2015, the AYF granted almost $620,000 in scholarships to youth from around the country, enabling them to attend our programs. Much of this annual support comes from enthusiastic participation from alumni, family and friends during special events. See the list below to find out if there is an event near you.

EPIC Games


It has been described as the Amazing Race, Double Dare, Minute to Win It, and Hollywood Game Night all in one!

Teams of six people compete at various mental and physical challenge stations facing off against other teams in an effort to conquer the games and truly be the EPIC Champions! Open to adults 21 and older. Food and refreshments available for registered teams.

Donald Danforth Jr. Memorial Dinner Auction & Golf Tournament

An event that sparks hundreds of young people to be their best selves.

Donald Danforth Jr. dedicated his life to helping people, advancing the mission, programs and people of the American Youth Foundation. It is to honor his legacy of humble service that we invite you to join us for a one or two-day affair that begins on Sunday, April 30, 2017, with a seated dinner and auction at Meadowbrook Country Club. Then, on Monday, May 1, 2017, golfers hit the links at Meadowbrook Country Club all in support of the American Youth Foundation’s scholarship program.
