Hago Harrington’s Mini Golf Course is hosting their second annual “Hago Cup for Cancer” mini golf to raise funds for Dana Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund on Saturday, September 21.
“We had an idea to host this event last year,” Hago’s Kim Ring said. “We contacted the Jimmy Fund and put this on. We’re the first private entity to host an event like this outside of a Jimmy Fund sponsored event. It did such a good job last year, other entities used our model.”
The “Hago Cup for Cancer” will celebrate the newly renovated course’s season in style with a fun-filled event that raises awareness and funds to fight a disease that affects 1 in 3 Americans each year. Golfers of all ages are invited to join locally famous faces such as Jen Royle of Herald Radio, Sherrod Blakely, Celtics Insider of Comcast Sports Net New England, and more, to wipe out cancer one putt putt at a time.
“We have all been affected by cancer in one way or another,” Ring said. “The owners and I have all had family members who have battled cancer.”
The tournament will have a DJ, a one-day liquor license. Golfers will have the chance to win Celtics tickets, Bruins merchandise and tons of other cool prizes. The winner of the tournament will win a huge cup.
This tournament kicks off at 7 p.m. and is open to all. There were over 200 participants last year that either came to compete or just hang around. The course is expecting the same turnout this year.
“This is tons of fun, simple as it can be,” Ring said. “And best of all, it’s for a great cause.”
