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!”
