PUEBLO, Colo. (September 13, 2017) – Colorado State University-Pueblo Athletics picked up their putters to donate to the Boys & Girl Club of Pueblo County at their 6th annual Who's Your Caddy Event Friday Sept. 8 at Epic Entertainment miniature golf course.
CSU-Pueblo Men's and Women's Golf served as guest caddies to help donors make that tough putt around the water at the Epic Entertainment. Pack Athletics also contributed a team to the event led by Athletic Director Joe Folda, Assistant Women's Basketball Coach Sarah Miles, and former Director of Athletic Training Roger Clark.
"Our squad had a great time and the tournament was for a great cause," Folda said. "There were some very difficult holes on the course, so the assistance received from the Pack golfers helped a lot!"
The Pack golf teams raised $321 for the Boys & Girls Club of Pueblo County by betting golfers they couldn't make their putts. This total was graciously matched by a $250 donation by former CSU-Pueblo Mass Communications Department Chair and current Boys & Girls Club board member Jennifer Mullen.
Pack Athletics also donated $100 to have their team compete in the field. With all these donations CSU-Pueblo raised $671 to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Pueblo County. These funds will help the Boys & Girls Club develop programming for at risk youth in the Pueblo Community.
Since 1972, Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County's proven youth development strategy has been the solution for children and teens in need. The Club's afterschool and summer programs fulfill an unquestionable need: keeping local youth productively occupied, out of trouble, and in a positive learning environment.
"Our golf programs have so many great and diverse individuals that it was easy to show up and help raise money for a great organization like the Pueblo Boys & Girls Club," CSU-Pueblo Director of Golf Josh Koschke said. "The miniature golf event was a perfect fit for us to support with student-athletes from all over the globe. It's great to give back to a community who does so much for CSU-Pueblo Athletics."
