The CJS Foundation was established in 2005 to honor the memory of Christian J. Sanborn, who died suddenly at the age of 37.  The CJS Foundation provides an annual scholarship to a Madison West High School (Chris’ high school) hockey player who demonstrates the qualities of being a Teammate.

Sannafest is the primary fundraising event for CJS Foundation.  Events include a golf outing, and a separate social event for all, golfers and non-golfers.  A raffle will be held throughout the weekend.  We hope that you might enjoy this weekend with us, either by your participation in any or all of the various activities or by your financial support of the Foundation.
