Holliday heads up the foundation that raises money to provide financial support and mentorship for families and organizations in need. According to its website, “its mission is to bring the values of the Belichick family – a love of sports, coaching and team building – to the athletic leaders of tomorrow.”
The former runner-up in the Mrs. Arkansas Pageant can often be seen around Boston with Coach Belichick at haute parties, charity events and, of course, Patriots games.
