Caddystacks at the Blackstone Library
Posted on August 12th, 2015

Branford, Conn: Planning is underway for the Blackstone Library’s fall fundraiser, CaddyStacks at Blackstone, which will transform the Library into an 18-hole mini golf course for a weekend. On October 3 & 4, 2015, the Library will be open for play for the enjoyment of the community.
 
The 18 greens and holes of the course will wind throughout the Library, between the stacks and down stairs, on all three levels. Putters, balls, and scorecards will be provided to players, and favors and prizes will be offered throughout the course. A flat $5 admission fee applies to all golfers, making this an affordable family outing and opportunity to support the Blackstone Library. Visit blackstonelibrary.org for more information.
 
On Saturday evening, there will be a special adults-only event, the 19th Hole Party. The event includes the opportunity to play the entire 18-hole course, a craft beer tasting with a local brewery, appetizers, and prize drawings. Tickets for the adult event are $40 in advance and are on sale now. Purchase tickets online or at the Library.
 
Sponsorships of mini golf holes are still available. Approximately 500 individuals are expected to play at CaddyStacks, and since the Library will be open, hundreds more will witness the fun – and see sponsor logos. Logos will be displayed at the sponsored hole and organizations will have the opportunity to decorate and place obstacles on their green. This is a great opportunity for businesses, organizations, or individuals to support the library and receive valuable community exposure. Sponsors include: Guilford Savings Bank of Hole #1 and the Friends of the Blackstone Library of Hole #18, additional sponsors include Andy McKirdy & Attorney Robin Bruce Sandler, Brandfon Honda, Connecticut Experiential Learning Center, Dunkin’ Donuts of Branford, Hammonasset Ford of Madison, Kaiser Whitney Staffing, and Polly & Al Fitz. For more information and to secure your sponsorship, please contact Katy Dillman at kdillman@blackstonelibrary.org or 203.488.1441, ext. 313.
 
The funds raised by the CaddyStacks at Blackstone event will be used by the library to continue to enhance its mission of providing essential access to information, resources, and unique shared experiences to help ensure Branford is an educated and enriched community. Innovative programs such as “Math Matters” and “We Create Storybook Art” for children, which incorporate stories and hands-on projects to reinforce the connections between the sciences, the arts, and literacy, and crucial services such as free computer classes, which help adult job seekers gain the skills they need for today’s workforce, are made possible with support from the community.
