We are so grateful to all our teams for participating in our golf tournament and supporting the GP M.A.D.E. Foundation. Enjoy this year’s team photos.

Congratulations to Love Columbia on their ribbon cutting today! GP M.A.D.E. Foundation was happy to underwrite the Children’s Room at Love Columbia and also to provide funding to turn the room into “THE ZOU” complete with a jungle mural and stuffed animals.

Love Columbia is a non-profit organization that helps people and families with socioeconomic challenges find the resources they need to love people forward. GP M.A.D.E is proud to partner with Love Columbia and hopes THE ZOU will bring cheer and comfort to children who may be experiencing uncertainty.

Welcome to THE ZOU — the Children’s Room at the new Love Columbia center, funded by GP M.A.D.E.

Coach Pinkel had no idea that he would receive proclamations from the Missouri House and Senate honoring his Hall of Fame induction. And he also had NO idea that after the ceremonies, he would also be attending a surprise birthday party!

Friends, family, colleagues and former players gathered at Madison’s restaurant in downtown Jefferson City to share a meal and wish Coach Pinkel a happy birthday. The highlight of the event was the video of funny and heartwarming birthday and congratulatory wishes compiled from all over the country. You can watch the video below and check out photos from the birthday party here.
