Our first ever “Throw Pink” Event was a wonderful success. Made up of friends, family members and volunteers, we were amazed to see so many show up to support our event and to learn about disc golf and to enjoy a beautiful morning outdoors in our very own FDR State Park.
WeDGE provided three fun disc golf clinics covering driving, mid range shots and putting in order to give participants an opportunity to learn the basics of the game.
Each participant received a special “Throw Pink” custom stamped disc and WeDGE sponsored a great raffle for our new friends. Our guests won great disc golf equipment; some went home with starter disc sets and one lucky supporter even took home an unique pink “Innova DiscCatcher Traveller”.
The morning activities were followed by a 9-Hole casual mini tournament where our participants could try their hand at playing a round of disc golf while enjoying a brisk hike through our scenic park.
The event was also sponsored by Captain Lawrence Brewing Company who graciously provided liquid refreshments.
This event was a fundraiser for SUPPORT CONNECTION, INC. a not-for-profit organization that provides emotional, social and educational support to women, their families and friends affected by breast and ovarian cancer. Our Support Connection contact, Katherine Quinn spoke movingly about the organization and how our support made a difference in the lives of real families. With the help of our friends and sponsors WeDGE was able to raise nearly $500.00 for this vital organization. And Katherine even learned to throw a disc.
