“Putting for Patriots” Event

to be held mid-May through Memorial Day Weekend

 

Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf, in North Conway, New Hampshire, will host the Eighth Annual Putting for Patriots fundraiser from Friday, May 9 through Monday, May 26.  This national event will occur simultaneously at 33 Pirate’s Cove, Pirate’s Island and Jungle Golf miniature golf courses throughout the United States.

This May event will culminate on Memorial Day weekend and support three charities, which serve our wounded veterans, their families and survivors of the fallen.  These organizations include: “Hope For The Warriors”, “Homes for Our Troops” and “TAPS—Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors.”  Pirate’s Cove, Jungle Golf and Pirate’s Island will donate a percentage of their total sales on Saturday, May 24 and Sunday, May 25.  In addition, from May 9 through May 26, each golf course will accept donations to be turned over to the three charities.  Since its inception, this event has raised over $173,000.

“Memorial Day was specifically founded to remember those who died serving our nation,” notes Brad Graft, Pirate’s Cove Partner and Regional Director.  “The Pirate’s Cove / Pirate’s Island family thought it appropriate to establish an annual event to serve charities that assist our living veterans and the survivors of fallen military members.  These are men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.”

Pirate’s Cove, Pirate’s Island and Jungle Golf operate 33 miniature golf courses throughout the United States.  For more information, visit their Web sites at www.piratescove.com, www.piratesislandgolf.com, and www.junglegolfminigolf.com .  Additional information on the above charities can be found by accessing their Web sites:  www.hopeforthewarriors.org, www.homesforourtroops.org and www.taps.org.   To become a participating Putting for Patriots golf course, see the Putting for Patriots tab on the home page of the Pirate’s Cove Web site: www.piratescove.com.
