Mini Golf Classic supports Mobile Library

December 13, 2016 - 3:41pm -- jfuentes

A miniature golf course inside a library?  What’s strange about that? 
 
On Saturday, November 19, PCL held its first ever Mini Golf Classic on two floors of the Rochambeau Library.  During the day, 100 children and their families golfed through the stacks and down the stairs, sometimes taking breaks to read and check out books!  
 
That evening, another 70 adults enjoyed snacks and libations while taking turns on this fairly challenging golf course. A couple of them even brought their own putters!
 
More than $5,000 was raised to support the programming that PCL provides through its Mobile Library. Special thanks go to the event’s sponsors: Dimeo Construction, Adler Pollock & Sheehan, Providence College, Teamsters Local 251 / AFSCME AFL-CIO Council 94 / United Service & Allied Workers of RI, Hope Street Merchants Association, and the PCL Board of Directors.
 
If you missed the fun, don’t worry. PCL will hold its Second Annual Mini Golf Classic in the fall of 2017.
