Community Involvement

At EHTC, we are active in the community. As a corporate citizen, EHTC strongly believes in the vitality of the Grand Rapids area. We recognize that a well-rounded business is measured not only by profitability, client satisfaction and professional growth, but also by its role in the community it shares. By joining together, we know we can make a difference in the lives of others.

Chipping for Charity Golf Outing

Since 1987, we have hosted an annual charity golf outing. Our golf outing, Chipping for Charity, provides an opportunity to help our community by donating to a worthy, local charity and enjoying a day of golf, fun and camaraderie. Participants may golf, attend the reception, sponsor a sign at one of the tees, donate to the charity or donate door prizes. 

Due to COVID-19, the 33rd Annual Chipping for Charity Golf Outing has been postponed until 2021. EHTC is always looking out for the health and safety of our team and community members, our team is looking forward to other opportunities to give back to the community during these uncertain times. In 2021, for the 33rd Annual Chipping for Charity Golf Outing, EHTC is looking forward to supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth
