‘Fore’ a good cause: Darien Library holds annual mini-golf fundraiser
Darien Library had the ball rolling Saturday when it hosted its 6th annual mini golf game.
Patrons, young and old, helped turn the entire three-story facility into a course, with 18 holes of fun fairways weaving in and out of books shelves and up and down staircases.
“We think this is a great opportunity for people to see the library with their families and for people to have fun,” said Alan Gray, director.
“People really get like a walking tour,” said Caroline Lopez, associate director, noting that too many people only know the first floor, and maybe not even that in its entirety.
“It’s a great way to get people in,” she said, with the library expecting to beat its previous record of 762 golfers throughout the day, and on par by the late morning.
“It’s such a wonderful community event,” said Alex Eising, board member.
“We have signs up all over town, but we didn’t even need to advertise,” she said. “People look forward to it every year.”
