Easton Library Mini-Golf Fundraiser Sponsors Needed

The Friends of the Easton Public Library is looking for local businesses to help sponsor “Links for Literature,” a Mini-Golf fundraiser to be held at the Library on Saturday, March 10th, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Several levels of sponsorship are available, including Title Sponsorship for $1,500, Hole Sponsorship for $100, a donation of an item, gift certificate, or gift basket for the Silent Auction, or a donation of refreshments for the event. Sponsors and donors will be mentioned in all publicity for the event, which will include flyers, website posts, Facebook, Instagram, and local newspapers. In addition, hole sponsors will have the opportunity to decorate their hole in any manner they wish.

An 18-hole miniature golf course will be set up inside the Library, creating a family-friendly event where people can play a round of golf, enjoy refreshments, socialize, and have fun. There will also be a Silent Auction. “We are looking forward to offering this fun and unique family event. I hope the community will embrace it and help to make it a success,” says Library Director Lynn Zaffino. Proceeds from this event will go towards enhancing the Library’s collection of print, audiovisual, and digital resources.
