Description

Scott Rolen’s Enis Furley Foundation is a non-profit organization created by Scott Rolen of the Cincinnati Reds. Our foundation is named after Scott’s eldest dog, Enis. In 1999 Scott had a vision to brighten the lives of children and their families who are dealing with an illness, hardship or other special needs. The Enis Furley Foundation works to achieve this goal by entertaining distressed families at Camp Emma Lou, our outdoor recreational retreat near Bloomington, IN. The Enis Furley Foundation also provides families unique and exciting, “once in a lifetime” sports experiences through our community outreach program, the Hot Corner Kids. Ultimately, our goals are quite simple and focused … we want to make children smile!
