Hill Family Foundation’s golf tournament raises $100K for Kids to Love

06/13/2023

The Hill Family Foundation raised more than $100,000 for the Kids to Love Foundation’s ongoing mental wellness efforts on Friday at the 2nd Annual Grant Hill Memorial Golf Tournament, held at Cherokee Ridge Country Club in Arab.

The money from the event benefits Kids to Love’s Smith Family Wellness Center, in honor of Mark C. Smith. The center is currently under construction and will be home to the Grant Hill Trauma Team.

“This new facility under construction will fill a critical need in the foster care community,” said Kids to Love Founder and CEO Lee Marshall. “Every single child in foster care has experienced trauma in some form. That trauma needs healing, and we know that trauma can be treated. The Grant Hill team is ready to meet that need and get these children the help they need to live healthy lives.”

The 150-player tournament honors Grant Sanders Hill, a former All-American football player at Huntsville High and a 2014 Alabama Crimson Tide Football Team SEC Champion. Grant played at Alabama from 2013-2015 as an offensive lineman and won multiple awards while playing at Alabama.

Grant Hill had a Masters in Psychology and Counseling Education and was working toward a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology when he died in a tragic hunting accident in October 2021. His dream was to establish a counseling center to help young adults and athletes struggling with depression, addiction, and trauma.

“This new facility will fill a critical need in the North Alabama under resourced youth counseling and foster care community,” said Grant’s parents, Brad and Stacey Hill. “We are honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the Smith Family Wellness Center, serving the Kids to Love organization. We believe in mental healing and will be a part of creating a team to conduct trauma counseling in this amazing facility in honor of our late son, Grant Hill.”
