Young Leaders United, an affinity group with United Way of Southeastern Connecticut, is hosting its first benefit event for United Way and its Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center. This exciting and fun “golfing for good” nighttime golf game takes place on Friday, August 31 at the Mohegan Sun Golf Club in Baltic. Registration is at 6 p.m. with golf beginning at dusk.
Golfers compete in teams of four, using one ball per team and taking alternate shots at a total of four holes. After completing the holes, teams move to the short game area for a chance at hitting into the "ring of fire" with each team member receiving two shots. A total number of points will be tallied from each team's eight shots at the ring of fire plus their score from the four holes.
In addition to the golf game, there will be a live DJ, other outdoor games, a food truck, and cash bar. The cost is $20 per golfer or $75 per team of four. Everyone is also encouraged to bring nonperishable food donations for the Food Center 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, courtesy of Mohegan Sun.
