There's still time to help Phelps County kids by participating in the 11th annual charity miniature golf tournament Saturday at Kokomo Joe's.
Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and players all tee off at 10 a.m. for a donation of $10 per player. All players will receive soft drinks from Kokomo Joe’s, a yo-yo from the Breakfast Kiwanis Club, and coloring and activity books from Phelps County Bank.
Players will also get one free raffle ticket for prizes that include Splash Zone passes, a $25 gift certificate from Fine Linen Theatre, a Family Fun pass for four from the Zone and some surprises. They can also ride the go-karts for only $5.50 — All passengers ride free.
Businesses, organizations and individuals can donate additional prizes, or they can sponsor a hole for $40. Sponsors include the Lions Club, Kyoto Japanese Restaurant, Penelope’s Restaurant, the Rolla Noon Kiwanis Club, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Leach Theatre, Harris Lawn Care, Kids Harbor, CASA of Central Missouri, Moreland Chiropractic, Michael Manley at Century 21, Kathy McKay at State Farm, Peacock Stained Glass and Phelps County Bank.
The money raised will benefit the PCCAN of Last Resort Fund. When GRACE has a family with children in the home, PCCAN can provide supplemental assistance. Funds are also used to help pregnant and postpartum women and their children who receive home visits through the Healthy Families Program, housed in the Phelps-Maries County Health Department.
The mini-gold tournament is a team effort of the Rolla Breakfast Kiwanis Club and the Phelps County Child Advocacy Network. PCCAN’s next fund-raise is Take a Stand July 12 and July 13.
