The Holland Employee Charitable Foundation (HECF) is pleased to announce that $25,000 was raised at this year’s Klondike Klassic Charity Golf Tournament thanks to the overwhelming support of Holland friends and associates including over 160 golfers and 90 sponsors. This annual winter golf event was held February 11th at Far Oaks Golf Club.
This year’s tournament was held to benefit Chakota Therapeutic Riding Center (Chakota TRC). Located in Germantown, IL, Chakota TRC provides Therapeutic Horseback Riding for children and adults with disabilities, including a new therapy program specifically designed for veterans.
At the conclusion of the event, members of the HECF presented a $25,000 check to Dave and Kay Langenhorst, founders of Chakota TRC. “Dave and I are humbled and eternally grateful for each of you that continue to believe,” said Kay Langenhorst. With added resources, the staff at Chakota-TRC plan to purchase needed supplies for the riders and the horses. They also hope to build an indoor riding arena which would allow their riders to have lessons year round regardless of the weather.
