UTICA, NY – On Saturday, August 12, 2017, the Utica Children’s Museum is hosting their first annual miniature golf tournament for children aged 5-12 starting at 1 pm at Proctor Park in Utica, NY. The cost of participation is $10.00, or $9.00 with the donation of a non-perishable food item that will be donated to the Utica Food Bank.
Kids will be separated into three different age groups and there will be first, second, and third prize winners. Each child will be given a goodie bag and will participate in an 18 hole golf course. At the 9th turn, children will enjoy hot dogs and snacks, and at the very end, there will be a banquet for the children.
Additionally, there will be a special hole-in-one contest and the winner will receive a camping prize of a tent, sleeping bag, and lantern. At the conclusion, there will be fireworks for everyone to enjoy. To register your child, please call the Utica Children’s Museum or stop by the Museum to sign up and drop off your food donation. Registration will be limited to the first 100 children.
This golf tournament benefits both the Utica Children’s Museum and the Utica Food Bank. As a special gift to the child that donates the most non-perishable food items – they will receive a family four pass to Enchanted Forest Water Safari!
