Participants in last week’s Mini Golf Classic didn’t realize what a good thing they were doing; they thought they were just having fun. Yet, thanks to the more than 300 people who participated and the more than 40 sponsors, more than $25,000 was raised for the Bryant/Landmark Scholarship and UCM Youth Programs.
This amount is more than double what was raised in last year’s event: a positive sign for coordinator Eileen McNally. Once again the Kingstowne Mid-Atlantic Golf Center was the site for this event which was held last Thursday. Each guest received a boxed dinner from Outback Steakhouse and a free round of golf. A silent auction section added another element of fun to the evening, giving participants the chance to bid on baskets, tools, toys, gift items, gift certificates and much more.
Cecelia Vergaretti, volunteer coordinator for UCM, said that she was thankful for all the people who volunteered to help, especially the group from Volunteers for Change, a part of Volunteer Fairfax.
