A Message from Brian H. Rolfe

The past few months have reminded me of what a wonderful group of people we have that work at and are associated with Kemp Klein. Our first charity golf outing was a resounding success with special thanks and gratitude to our clients, friends, and vendors as well as hardworking Kemp Klein team members. In addition to their efforts at the golf outing, our attorneys and staff have been out in the community doing a variety of interesting and impactful things. Whether they’re donating meals, writing books, supporting a national stage production, or winning top awards, these folks make us all proud to be part of the Kemp Klein team.

Kemp Klein Charity Golf Outing helps thousands of Metro Detroiters

Over 160 golfers and countless volunteers and sponsors converged on The Links of Novi for Kemp Klein’s first charity golf outing to benefit Forgotten Harvest on September 19, 2022. The sold-out event produced astounding results: over $30,000 donated to Forgotten Harvest which will provide 120,000 meals to Metro Detroiters in need.

The Kemp Klein Foundation, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year, was the host organization through which all donations were made. The Foundation has donated over half a million dollars to local and national nonprofit organizations since its inception and has hosted charitable activities like blanket making and holiday gift collections for families in need. 

Forgotten Harvest delivers 144,000 pounds of surplus food per day to local charities five days a week, providing families in need with fresh and nutritious food free of charge. The organization rescues approximately 50 million pounds of food surpluses each year from grocery stores, markets, restaurants, and caterers and delivers it free of charge to emergency food providers in Metro Detroit.

Kemp Klein attorney and shareholder Robert S. Zawideh spearheaded the event with help from many Kemp Klein staffers and volunteers.
