MAHAMS Scholarships

At our 2023 Annual Conference, we proudly awarded multiple scholarships to deserving children and grandchildren of our membership. Our primary fundraiser is the Dave Barss Memorial Golf Outing, named in honor of the events founder. This event, in a small way, helps us remember Dave and his love of golf, his many MAHAMS friends and the Scholarship Fund. Special thanks to the many Sponsors and Major Sponsors of this event who helped us raise money for our scholarships. Thanks to their generous support, MAHAMS awarded an additional scholarship of $1000.00 in the memory of Dave Barss.
