Child’s Play Invitational 2015

As summer approaches, so does our annual Child’s Play Invitational! This will be our Fifth Annual tournament event and we’ll be returning to Willows Run Golf Course in Redmond, WA on July 17, 2015 for an afternoon on the links.

This year’s tournament will include opportunities for spectators and the mini-golfers to hit the course and enjoy the day, and we’ll wrap up the festivities with a celebration BBQ. As always, proceeds benefit children in over 200 hospitals and domestic violence shelters worldwide through Child’s Play.

Ticket sales will be live in the coming weeks so keep an eye out, but mark Friday, July 17th down on your calendar for a day on the course for the kids!
