Mentor Iowa is honored to keep this post on our home page as this is our largest one day check we have received in our history. We would like to thank O’Donnell & Friends Charities for selecting Mentor Iowa as the charity of choice from their golf outing in 2016. As a result of their hard work and efforts, Mentor Iowa received $103,198.25 to help create the Dan & Dee O’Donnell scholarship. This scholarship will benefit Mentor Iowa mentees who are in their Sophomore, Junior and Senior years in college.
