GRANDVILLE, Mich. / September 12, 2023 — Weichert, Realtors® – Platinum Group raised over $23,000 at its third annual charity golf tournament earlier this Summer. Proceeds from the event benefited Breck’s Heart for a Hope, a non-profit organization in Western Michigan dedicated to funding research of Congenital Heart Defects.

The team at Weichert, Realtors® – Platinum Group organized the event and recruited participants for the charitable cause. The event brought together 160 golfers for the fun-filled outing at Sunnybrook Country Club in Grandville.

Breck’s Heart for Hope is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help fund the research of Congenital Heart Defects and bring joy to families in the hospital in West Michigan. The organization was founded by Deena Vroegindewey, a REALTOR® with Weichert, Realtors® – Platinum Group and daughter of the company’s owner, Craig Van Assen. Vroegindewey’s son, Breck, was born with a congenital heart defect and has undergone multiple open heart surgeries throughout his young life.

“It’s amazing to see this event continue to grow year after year and bring our community together to benefit our amazing cause,” said Vroegindewey. “I’m proud and thankful to our team for their hard work in putting together this event and recruiting so many people from our community.”
