Putter Power to Raise Money for Ronald McDonald House
July 21, 2012 11:34 PM EDT
Central Virginia families with hospitalized children are benefitting from a fundraiser at the Putt-Putt Fun Center Saturday.
Putter Power is an event where folks could grab a club and play for $6 or buy tickets to play games and get their faces painted. A hundred percent of the money raised helps care for 18 families that are currently living at the Ronald McDonald House in Charlottesville.
Candace Schoner of the Ronald McDonald House said, "Support a local charity - the only local charity that provides temporary housing to families when they need it most - when their child is ill or injured and being treated at UVA."
Due to some inclement weather Saturday, the event will take place again next Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Putt-Putt Fun Center on Rio Road.
