Hitting the putting green for a good cause

Posted: Updated:
ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. -

The second annual mini golf fundraiser for "With Love From Vermont" had families putting and chipping to victory in Essex Junction Saturday.

The Family Fun and Entertainment Center donated three free hours of mini golf to the organization. Golfers paid 5 dollar to play. The proceeds went towards meals for children suffering from hunger. Local Vermont businesses donated food and services for the event. On many of the holes players could win free prizes for a hole in one. Organizers say events like these are fun -- but more importantly, help children in need around the world.

"Everyday 6300 children die around the world of starvation or hunger related diseases. And here in the US we have the resources to feed not only our families and children, but to help feed children around the world." organizer Fred Kenney said Saturday.
