If you feel like you may as well golf in the dark, here's your chance

If you sometimes feel like you may as well play golf in the dark, you’ll have your chance Friday evening – in the name of fun, and to benefit the Aquarium of Niagara.

The annual Putting for Penguins fundraiser, which supports the nonprofit educational attraction and its water-loving residents, starts with registration and 4:30 p.m. Friday at the Newfane Pro-Am course, 2501 N. Main St. (Route 78), Newfane.

A buffet-style dinner begins at 5:45 p.m.; nine holes will be played in a scramble or best ball format. At 9 p.m., there will be raffles, prizes and awards followed by the last half of golf in the dark with Glo-Balls and “light ropes.”

Putting for Penguins chairman is Steve Kling, an aquarium board member. Reporter Ed Drantch, of WIVB-TV, is celebrity chairman. DJ, Pat Proctor will play music to golf by.

Entry fees are $90 per golfer; $360 for a foursome. Party only is $35.

Golfers are asked to register by Monday. Individuals, corporations and businesses can call Claudia O’Neil at 285-3575, Ext. 216 to become a sponsor, donate a prize or for additional information.

If you sign up, aquarium officials advised, “Don’t forget your flashlights and bug spray!”
