7th Annual Mini-Golf Tournament raises funds for new program year
With a “cruising” theme, Power 4 Youth hosted their seventh-annual fundraising mini-golf tournament at Boomers Fountain Valley on Monday, September 25. Attendees played 17 holes plus a hole-in-one challenge to win prizes and awards. Attendees also had the chance to purchase raffle tickets for prizes as well as participate in a silent auction of various prizes.
The annual tournament was started by the board of directors as a signature event in recognition of the youth they serve. This year featured an increase in support from throughout the community. “We are very excited about our sponsors for this year, including Keesal, Young & Logan and Warren Lortie,” said Val Parker, Power 4 Youth Executive Director.
Run like a “real” golf tournament, the event attracts participants that don’t play golf, as well as serious golfers, who use the occasion to practice their putting. “At first people were skeptical, but we have groups return year after year, with some small companies using it as a team building event,” Parker said. Dinner followed the tournament where raffle and silent auction winners were announced, along with prizes ranging from lowest score to most spirited team.
Power 4 Youth’s next mini golf event will be held on Monday, September 24 next year.
