Local golfers build hope in Congo
Golfers in western Wisconsin are having a significant impact on the lives of orphans in Africa.
Troy and Heather Boe of New Richmond have formed a non-profit foundation called "Be Their Hope" with a goal of making the lives of orphans and young mothers better in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The main fundraiser for the new foundation is an annual "Golf For Congo" event in June at the New Richmond Golf Course. This year's gathering is Monday, June 17, at 1 p.m.
