Davenport, IA (PRWEB) October 14, 2011
Mel Foster Co. is hosting its third annual Putt for Charity event. This year’s event will be on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. at a new location, The Golden Leaf Banquet & Convention Center in Davenport.
Putt for Charity is a miniature golf tournament that includes 18 custom holes designed for your entertainment. Proceeds will benefit the Domestic Violence Shelter of Family Resources, an organization that provides shelter services for families fleeing domestic violence situations. In addition to meeting the basic needs of women and children in the shelter such as food, clothing and shelter, the shelter provides both individual and group counseling for all residents.
Cheryl Goodwin, Family Resources CEO/President stated, “On behalf of Family Resources and the hundreds of women and children we serve annually at the Domestic Violence Shelter, my genuine thanks to Mel Foster Co. agents and staff for choosing our program as the beneficiary of this year’s Putt for Charity. Our generous community is what allows us to continue providing priceless service to our most vulnerable.”
“Each year our agents and employees select a charitable organization that is near and dear to their hearts, and Mel Foster Co. is pleased to contribute to help end violence in our community by donating the 2011 proceeds from Putt for Charity to the Domestic Violence Shelter of Family Resources Inc,” said Kris Ratigan, Marketing Director at Mel Foster Co.
Each golfer will enjoy 18 holes of miniature golf, as well as hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. There will be door prizes including a chance to win $5,000 compliments of Radon Solutions. Non golfers can purchase a “Caddy Special”, a social only ticket. Registration deadline is Friday, October 28.
“Last year’s event raised $14,000, and we are confident that with our community partners, agents and employees we can raise the money again!” added Ratigan.
