The Ray & Mary Knight Foundation

What it Does

The Ray and Mary Knight Foundation helps raise money for different needs throughout the community. In the past the foundation has helped kids take advantage of educational opportunities that they could not otherwise afford.

In 2022, the foundation is focusing on Mental Health & Suicide Prevention.

How it is Funded

The Ray and Mary Knight Foundation is funded from special events and individual or business donations. An annual golf outing has been especially effective. It is a perennial sell-out and raises many thousands of dollars each year.

The First Annual KnightFest will take place August 4th, 2022 with hopes to continue to raise money with the focus of supporting Mental Health and Suicide prevention.

The Knight’s Restaurants’ and Market’s extended family of loyal customers, employees and suppliers are key to the success of the fundraising activities. They bring extraordinary commitment and generosity.
