Lunch Pail Defense Foundation

Coach Bud Foster, has combined his coined symbol, the Lunch Pail, and his personal notoriety, to create an amazing community scholarship as well as a new Organ Transplant Family Support Program.

The Lunch Pail Defense Foundation is a non-profit corporation (per IRS Code Section 501(c)(3)) whose dual purpose is to fund an academic scholarships for eligible high school students from the New River or Roanoke Valley areas, as well as assisting the families of those awaiting organ transplants.

The LPD scholarship recipient will embody the characteristics symbolized by the Lunch Pail in terms of spirit, character, work ethic and determination to succeed in all areas of life.

Our new Organ Transplant Support program is in conjunction with Duke University Medical Center, and aims to provide financial assistance to the families of those undergoing organ transplants with often prohibitive costs like longterm lodging, transportation, food, and child care, among others.

Golf Outing 2016

The Lunch Pail Defense Foundation held its 3rd annual golf tournament on Friday July 1, 2016 at the Auburn Hills Golf Club in Riner Va. This year Coach Bud Fosters tournament drew 29 teams from around the state and drew great sponsorship from repeat supporters and very generous new supporters.This years winners were the team consisting of RandyTeel, ZachNolen, Brandon Linkous and Tim Dunkleman. They carded a score of 53 and were awarded new golf bags courtesy of Mark Bennett and the Virginia Eagle Distributing Company. Second place winners were the Patrick Moore team consisting of Andrew Crowder, Daniel Schroeder, Henry Moore and John Jones. They carded a score of 54 and were awarded LPD Duffel bags, courtesy of LPDFoundation.

In April of this year the foundation awarded 4 deserving students a scholarship in the amount of $5,000.00 each just prior to the kick off of the Va Tech football teams spring game and in March of this year, the foundation made a donation of $15,000.00 to the Organ Transplant Family Support Program at Duke University Hospital in Durham N.C. This brings the total to $67,500 in scholarships awarded by Coach Fosters foundation.

The annual golf outing is a major fund raiser of the foundation and it wishes to thank all of the volunteers who give so generously of their time toward this event, the Auburn Hills owners, staff and especially Jeff Gandee, the Director of Golf for all of their time and efforts. The foundation wishes to express its heart felt thanks to the players and the sponsors who make this event possible and profitable. Without all of these folks there would be no benefits to disperse.

We look foreword to next years tournament and hope the participation and excitement continue.​
