Big Spring Rotary Club to sponsor putt-putt fund-raiser
Calling all grandparents, grandchildren, parents and kids. The Big Spring Rotary Club is having its first putt-putt tournament to benefit PolioPlus. The tournament is set for April 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Park and Putt Family Fun Center, located on South U.S. Highway 87. PolioPlus is a humanitarian program launched by Rotary International, aimed at ridding the world of polio. A percentage of the proceeds raised from the tournament will be donated to the program. “We were looking for a fun event that the entire family could take part in,” said Dathan Jones, Rotary board member. Registration is $18 per person and includes a t-shirt. Jones said that since this is a fundraising event, the cost is the same for all participants no matter the age. “Everyone is bound to have a good time,” Jones said. “We won't be keeping score. It will just be about taking part in a fun event.”There will be door prizes, food and drinks during the tournament. Those wanting to purchase tickets early can go by the YMCA at 801 Owens.
