The Dothan Houston County Library System’s first annual Library Mini Golf Classic, presented by Mike Schmitz Automotive Group, was a resounding success, raising a total of $8,775 for the library’s collections, early literacy programs, and community outreach activities.
“Considering that this is the first time we’ve done an event like this, this is truly incredible,” said Chris Warren, DHCLS Director. “We’ve heard only positive feedback from everyone who participated, and we’re hoping that this can become a new tradition for residents of Dothan and Houston County.”
On Saturday, the Library Mini Golf Classic saw 80 participants play 18 holes of miniature golf setup throughout the Main Library, while also enjoying beer, wine, and heavy appetizers from KBC. The event also included a silent auction, with over twenty items donated from local businesses and residents.
During the Library Mini Golf Family Fun Day on Sunday, over 160 participants of all ages enjoyed the Main Library’s 18-hole miniature golf course, as well as food, drink, and refreshments from local food trucks.
The Library Mini Golf Classic was made possible through the support of several sponsors, including Mike Schmitz Automotive Group, U.S. Business Products, Scott and Everlie Bolton, and George and Laura Flowers. The event also relied on the hard work and dedication of the library’s staff, trustees, and volunteers, who helped with planning, setting up, and managing the event throughout the weekend.
