Spots limited for Middlesex United Way Putts for Purpose, which aids schools

The Middlesex United Way Young Leaders Society will hold its fourth annual Putts for a Purpose Charity Miniature Golf Tournament at Torza’s Golf in Cromwell.

The event will be held June 6 at 5:30 p.m., and will feature one round of miniature golf, dinner, drinks, and the opportunity to network — all for a worthy cause.

Proceeds raised from the event will benefit Middlesex County schools to help them purchase much-needed school supplies. These are distributed to families in need to ensure the children go back to school prepared. Each $30 ticket includes a round of miniature golf, dinner and one draft beer.

Teams of four, as well as individuals, are encouraged to sign up, and experience is not required. This evening is a fun time to connect with other young professionals in the area, as well as an opportunity to learn more about the Young Leaders Society, a group of committed, young professionals (40 and under) working together to advance the common good.

Dedicated to growing the spirit of philanthropy, community advocacy, volunteerism and leadership, the group provides opportunities for networking, learning and leading, and volunteering.

This year’s event is made possible by our sponsors: Best Cleaners, Disaster Restoration Services, Middlesex Health Care at Home, Edward Jones, Harding Development Group, Wright-Pierce as well as Torza’s Golf and Taphouse 150.

Last year’s event raised more than $2,000 and sold out quickly. As an attendee myself for the last four years, I can promise you this is one you do not want to miss.

Not only is it for a great cause, but you will also be surrounded by a group of hardworking young professionals. I am so proud of our Young Leaders Society for stepping up to support local kids. To RSVP, visit middlesexunitedway.org/yls or call 860-346-8695.
