In 2004, Furniture & ApplianceMart created the Fore a Cure golf outing
to benefit Marshfield Clinic's breast cancer and juvenile diabetes care
programs; two diseases that have had a personal effect on the Fonti
family. The Fore a Cure golf outing is held anually, and has helped raise 1.7
Million for the Marshfield Clinic. The money raised has help the Marshfield
Clinic with beast cancer research, juvenile diabetes prevention, the child
advocacy center and the mobile mammography unites at the clinic. Today,
three mobile mammography units have been bought and paid for using
funds from this event.
An annual 1-night shopping spree is held at the local Shopko in Stevens
Point, WI. All of the gifts purchased are transported from Shopko to the
Toys for Tots drop off, and then sent off to the kids so they have something
nice under the tree on Christmas morning. Over the last 10 years, the Fonti
family has worked with friends, community leaders and business owners to
raise more than $80,000 in gifts for for the Kids of Wisconsin. To date, these
donations have helped over 8,000 kids receive gifts on Christmas.
Since 2011, more than 12 truckloads of furniture has been donated to
St. Vincent dePaul in Green Bay, WI. The furniture donations included
upholstery, bedroom, dining room furniture and more. St. Vincent dePaul
was chosen because 100% of the profits from the organization go back to
the programs they serve.
