The court resurfacing is one of many ways that the Holtmanns have given back to the Columbus community. The Holtmanns have helped kids stay active through parks and recreation scholarships and have participated in Columbus Recreation and Parks Department’s Adopt a Center holiday program. They have also committed to continuing this partnership with Columbus Recreation and Parks into the future by resurfacing another basketball court in 2023. The Holtmanns are regular contributors to the Mid-Ohio Food Collective and are proud supporters of the A Kid Again program, as well as Coaches vs. Cancer and the American Cancer Society.
