The Holland Employee Charitable Foundation (HECF) is pleased to announce that $23,000 was raised at this year’s Klondike Klassic Charity Golf Tournament thanks to the overwhelming support of Holland friends and associates including 160 golfers and over 100 sponsors. The event was held February 27th at Far Oaks Golf Club.
This year’s tournament was held to benefit Fontebella Maternity Home. Founded in 2009 by Bob and Susan Hoff, Fontebella provides a safe, loving, home-like setting for women 18 and older who are facing an unplanned pregnancy and have nowhere else to turn.
Members of the HECF presented a $23,000 check to Fontebella at the conclusion of the event. “We are so grateful for this blessing, and will be able to do so many incredible things to advance the mission of Fontebella with this money,” said founder Susan Hoff. With added resources, Fontebella’s plans include expansion of their home, addiction and mental health services for the women residing at the home, and the addition of long-term after-care units.
