Creativity ~ Communication ~ Philanthropic ~ Camaraderie
This is TEAMBUILDING and PHILANTHROPY at its best.
This event combines the interaction of building and playing your own miniature golf course and donating can goods and the carpet to local food banks and homeless shelters. You will putt like Nicklaus and give to the needy.
The event will be designed to have a Military aspect to by donating the food items Military Families.
The food items used for the golf course will be used to fill food baskets for Service Men and Women in need. The baskets will include a gift card for a Turkey or Ham.
Charity – Heroes to Home is an organization that assist service men and women who have been injured in battle and are coming home for the first time. The organization assists their families in meeting their basic needs.
The Golf program will provide food baskets for the families.
Your group will be divided into “more-somes” for this event, which promotes camaraderie and creativity. In the tradition of the popular miniature golf course, each team will design and build a golf hole using materials supplied. The teams will use can goods and boxed items as obstacles for the course. Creativity is the key.
After your mini “Augusta” course has been completed, teams will choose golfers to represent them in competition play. There is task for everybody on the team from golfers to scorekeepers and course marshals. Even experienced golfers will enjoy the challenge of this uniquely designed course.
So, whether you birdie, bogie or hole in one, your team will all feel like pros in this better-than-PGA golf classic!
Once the event is completed, the can goods are boxed and presented to Military families and the carpet is donated to a homeless shelter for a ground cover during cold and inclement weather. All of the paper products are recycled.
The event has an incredible effect on the local communities and the food banks. With today’s economy, the local food banks are visited more each day. In a February article in USA Today it was reported that 1 out of 8 Americans received emergency food help in 2010. One and Five Children received food from food from soup kitchens and food banks.
At each a representative from the local food banks will talk about the needs of the area and accept the donation. One that presentation is done, the participants will box the items, form a human chain and move the boxes to the food bank truck
This is truly a GREEN, PHILANTROPIC and TEAMBUIDLING program tied into one.
