Each year, the Community Foundation of the Holland/Zeeland Area hosts an annual fall event to celebrate members of our community whose philanthropy is creating lasting positive change in our region. This event is an important opportunity to come together to support charitable giving and build awareness of our work to build our community’s endowment and help donors achieve their charitable goals.
This annual event brings together more than 600 community leaders and Foundation supporters for an evening of celebrating our community's generosity while enjoying grazing-style dining from a number of the area's best restaurants, bakeries, and caterers.
