Mini-disc-golf event, raffle benefit Prouty Center

BRATTLEBORO — The Winston Prouty Center's biggest fundraiser of the year, Par for the Cause, will be held in June.

Event organizers have made supporting the nonprofit's programs for children and families fun with daily raffle prizes throughout June and a decorated mini-disc-golf game on Saturday and Sunday, June 26 and 27.

Tickets are now available for the Prize-a-Day Raffle. Each day in June two winners will be selected, with total prizes valuing over $2,900.

Prizes include gift certificates to a wide variety of restaurants, services, and activities in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. The raffle also features custom-made crafts, including a Prouty picnic table, a birdhouse, and jewelry as well as a visit from the Early Learning Express Bookmobile and memberships to Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center and The Revel-YOU-Tion with Stasia Savasuk, a style coach based in the region.

Every ticket purchased - one for $5, five for $20, or 15 for $50 - carries through the whole month.

On the last weekend in June, a 9-hole disc golf course will be transformed into “Children's Storybooks,” a fantasy-filled, miniature-golf-inspired game offering fun for all ages. The course weaves through the Prouty campus forest and fields.

For $20, a group of up to four people can sign up on the website for tee-times, in 15-minute increments between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday. The ticket price to play is $20 per group.

The event is rain or shine. Discs will be available to borrow if needed.

As part of the celebration, on Saturday, June 26, between 5 and 8 p.m., a picnic dinner on the campus lawn will feature games and music DJed by Jafala. Beer, wine, cider, and non-alcoholic drinks, dinner by A Bite to Eat, and treats by Vermont Gelato will be sold.
