There’s money to be made on the golf course — even when it’s only mini-golf. United Community Ministries has capitalized on that by hosting its third annual Mini-Golf Classic.
It was held at Kingstowne Mid-Atlantic Golf Center and more than 300 hundred people attended. Guests enjoyed dinner by Outback Steakhouse, a round of golf, games, performers, ice cream and popcorn. Members of Just Clowning Around of Northern Virginia did face painting, which several people, including Cecelia Vergaretti, volunteer coordinator for UCM, and Diana Margonie, Career Development Coordinator, took advantage of. Many people went home with one of the silent auction items.
More than 40 sponsors helped to bring the total proceeds of the event to over $25,000. Money will be used for the Bryant/Landmark Scholarship and UCM Youth Programs.
