The Friends of the Caroline County Public Library in Denton
hosted their second annual two-day mini golf event fundraiser on February 25 and 26.
Over 200 mini-golfers participated in the event, which featured an 18-hole course on two floors of the library, weaving in and out of the library aisles and eventually winding down the stairs for an (almost) guaranteed hole-in-one. The Friends of the Library organized the event, and Library Mini Golf from Massachusetts came to Caroline County to build the course with the help of local volunteers.
Saturday night featured a 21 and over adults–only night, with beer and wine sold. Saturday was for the entire family with people of all ages who could play the course for $7 or $25 for a foursome.
Library director Debby Bennett said, “To me, this is a great fundraiser and a great event all in one,” she said. “I think it gives kids a chance to enjoy some mini golf, but also gives adults a chance to be kids for an evening and enjoy something I’m sure they did a lot of when they were kids.”
The Friends of the Library are grateful for the generous support of our local sponsors. We thank each and every one of them! Platinum Sponsor Joseph H. McCarthy, DDS, PA, Gold Sponsor Shore United Bank and Silver Sponsors JRJ Properties and PNC Bank.
