Points for a Purpose raises $2,751 for House of Hope

WATERLOO — Kimball and Beecher Family Dentistry and Coloff Media presented the House of Hope with a donation of $2,751.00 Wednesday afternoon at its main offices in Waterloo.

The check presentation concluded the third season of the ‘Points for a Purpose Campaign’, an philanthropic effort ran in conjunction with Cruisin’ KCFI’s (1250 AM and 105.1 FM) play-by-play broadcasts and coverage of Cedar Falls High School athletics during the 2019-20 sports season.

Kimball and Beecher Family Dentistry sponsored this year’s campaign and pledged to donate 50-cents for every point the Cedar Falls Tigers scored in varsity football, girls basketball and boys basketball during the 2019-20 campaign. These are the main varsity sports carried by Coloff Media’s Cruisin’ KCFI.

The Cedar Falls Tigers had an exceptional scoring season in 2019-20 across the three varsity sports, combining for 3,502 points. The Tigers’ football team ended the year with a state quarterfinals appearance, while the girls’ basketball team made it to state quarterfinals and the boys basketball team won the Class 4A third-place game at the state tournament.

In conjunction with Kimball and Beecher’s $1,751.00 donation to House of Hope, Coloff Media Owner Jim Coloff donated an additional $1,000 to the House of Hope.


Coloff Media has carried Cedar Falls Tigers athletics, as well as many other local sports broadcasts since 1995.  Currently Cruisin’ KCFI (1250 AM & 105.1 FM) broadcasts regular season Tigers varsity football, girls and boys varsity basketball, and other Tiger sports during postseason play.

House of Hope is a group of passionate women with one goal, who use all of their resources to make it happen: empower women to lead self-sufficient lives.

House of Hope knows its hard work is worth it because their success rate speaks for itself — 86% of the women that leave House of Hope go on to live happily independent lives, and their children grow up with confident role models with a roof over their heads.
