14TH ANNUAL KROESCHELL CHARITY GOLF OUTING SEPTEMBER 9TH, 2024

Our good friends at Kroeschell have again, chosen HelloBaby to be the beneficiary of their annual charity golf outing!

The Golf Outing is a “Can’t Miss” event for Kroeschell partners. It attracts over 200 executive level decision-makers in the AEC industry and has raised over $500,000 for charities in the past! We have numerous fundraisers occurring throughout the event including raffles on the green, fun contests and games and a silent auction, all devoted to gathering funds to benefit HelloBaby.
