A “Hole” Lot of Fun at Mini Golf 2018

The Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation’s Mini Golf Fundraiser was once again a great success! The event was held on Saturday, March 3 and welcomed over 400 golfers of all ages putting their way through the Library. Each of the 18 holes was sponsored by local businesses and organizations, decorated with unique themes and challenging obstacles. Always a course favorite was the hole on the stairs which gave many golfers the opportunity to get their first hole-in-one. Afterward, players enjoyed activities and entertainment in the 19th Hole.
Special thanks to all the event sponsors and volunteers who helped make it a great day at the Library:
Anderson Tax & Accounting, B & E Accounting, Busse Automotive, Edward Jones, Friends of the Mount Prospect Public Library, Friedrichs Funeral Home, Lattof YMCA, Mathnasium, Mount Prospect Historical Society, Mount Prospect Junior Women’s Club, Mount Prospect Lions Club, Mount Prospect State Bank, Nakfoor Orthodontics, Nothing Bundt Cakes, ReMax Suburban, Picket Fence Realty, St. Mark Preschool & Enrichment Center, and St. Paul Lutheran School.
Funds raised at the event help the Foundation sponsor programs and projects at the Library that would be otherwise unattainable with tax dollars.
