Young Leaders United

Young Leaders United are tomorrow's community leaders and philanthropists. United Way provides the Young Leaders ages 21-40 with the tools to Give, Serve, and Inspire their local community.

Join the Young Leaders for Glow Golf on May 18 at Mohegan Sun Golf Club!

Golfers compete in teams of four, using one ball per team and taking alternate shots until each hole is completed. There are a total of four holes.

After completing the holes, teams will move to the short game area for a chance at hitting the ball into the "ring of fire."  Each team member is given two shots from 30 yards for a chance at the ring of fire. A total number of points will be tallied from each team's eight shots at the ring of fire plus score from the four holes.

The cost is $20 per golfer or $75 per team of four. Proceeds benefit United Way and the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center. Everyone is encouraged to bring nonperishable food donations as well to help reduce hunger and food insecurity in our community.

Each member of the winning team will be provided with an overnight stay at a Mohegan Sun hotel! There will be other outdoor games, a 50/50 drawing, and more plus Munchies food truck and a cash bar.

Registration is at 6 p.m. and golf begins at dusk. Click here to register online. 21 and over only PLEASE!
