Putt-A-Round Raises $108,000 for area kids!

Right on PAR! Putt-A-Round returned to the RiverCenter, February 7-10 for the 18th year. With great weather and an outpour of support from sponsors, donors and participants we delivered another unforgettable and impactful fundraiser! A big Thank You goes out to our co-presenting sponsors, Quad City Area Realtors and the Khaliq Group of Wells Fargo Advisors for their partnership to keep Putt-A-Round a thriving fundraiser for BBBS and a must-attend for hundreds in the QCA.

The event raised the most gross revenue ever at $108,169. This resulted in part from more sponsorship dollars, t-shirt sales and new table caddie rentals. We had 43 total sponsors and a great turnout of 175 people plus 11 mascots on Match Night then 325-plus teams throughout the week. The course layout was very spacious and well laid out, under the leadership of Butch Haverland. It offered 23 remarkable, custom-built mini-golf holes with two of them new to Putt. There was nothing short of remarkable craftsmanship, collaboration, one-of-a-kind challenges, and an outpour of support for BBBS.  In total, over 1,500 people played the course this year!!!
