Marathon golf to benefit Sgt. Alonso
JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP — Wil Riggs, operations manager at the Bowling Green Golf Club is shown practicing for his "Golf-a-Thon" fundraiser for the Alonso Strong Benefit Fund.
He plans to play golf with his friend Kurt Maas for 24 consecutive hours. During total darkness, they will use "glow in the dark" golf balls. The flag sticks on the greens also will "glow in the dark".
The "Golf-a-Thon" will begin at 11 a.m. on Monday morning, July 7 and end at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, July 8.
Riggs is looking for sponsors to help him raise funds for the benefit. Riggs is hoping to play 100 holes, rain or shine. In lieu of paying per hole, you can make a specific donation.
To be a sponsor, call the Golf Club at 973-697-8688 or go the golf club on Schoolhouse Road and request a sponsor form.
Results will be available July 14.
