Help us ‘Putt’ hunger away

Clovis Rotary, Food Bank to ‘putt’ hunger away

The Clovis Rotary Club will host a miniature golf tournament on Saturday Sept. 23  at Casel-Land Fun Center in Clovis to benefit Clovis Rotary Service Projects and the Food Bank of Eastern New Mexico. Funds donated to the Food Bank will go directly to its Food for Kids Backpack program which provides weekend food to elementary students.

“The Rotary Club celebrated such a successful fundraiser last year, that we wanted to make it a yearly event,” said Rotary President Marli Raney.

Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. and a shotgun start will take place at 10 a.m. Lunch will be provided at noon.  The tournament will host four-player teams with an entrance fee of $200 per team. Hole sponsorships are available for $50 or $100. Families, friends and businesses are encouraged to register teams for a friendly competition.
