LOCAL NONPROFIT HOSTS FREE COMMUNITY WIDE TRICK-OR-TREAT EVENT
Rogers, Ark. (October 27, 2014)– On Saturday, November 1 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., The First Tee of Northwest Arkansas will turn the Heritage High School Indoor Training Facility into a giant putt-putt course, with a goal of providing a free and safe Halloween event for families throughout Northwest Arkansas. The course will be made up of 23 themed putting holes, each sponsored by local, regional and national businesses. First Tee is expecting 1,000 people to attend, based off of last year’s numbers.
“We love being a part of this event because it provides a sense of community and celebration,” says Robert Rivera, Director of Sales at The Coca-Cola Company. “The families that attend know that The First Tee is a trustworthy organization and they feel safe in bringing their children here for a fun, candy-filled experience.”
The sponsoring companies will decorate their hole with a theme of their choice, bring their volunteers to assist the kids going through the course and, of course, hand out lots of treats.
“This is a great way to provide our organization’s supporters with an additional opportunity to give back to the community,” says director of outreach, Elizabeth Prenger. “Everyone involved in this event has a wonderful time and it cannot be possible without our amazing sponsors and volunteers.”
