Bristol, WI – On Friday, August 26, 2016, the Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics Wisconsin will present the 3rd Annual Nine at Night. Nine at Night is a unique golf opportunity that allows participants the experience to play a round of golf at night. All proceeds will go to benefit Special Olympics Wisconsin.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Bristol Oaks Golf Course. Once participants have registered, they will be provided a delicious dinner before playing a nine-hole round of golf! Raffles will take place throughout the evening and prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 9th, and last place golf teams.
“We wanted to have a fun event that was unique and different than anything else out there,” said Kenya Mason of the Department of Corrections and Nine at Night Chair. “As law enforcement, we are always trying to help our communities and through this event, we’re helping individuals with intellectual disabilities play sports like golf by simply golfing ourselves. Add in the fact that we are golfing at night and what’s not to love!”
Participants can register online for Nine at Night. Registration will be $75 for an individual golfer and $300 for a team of four. All participants will receive a round of golf, goodie bag, two light-up golf balls, two drink tickets and dinner with registration.
The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics Wisconsin is to raise funds and awareness for the Special Olympics movement. Year-round, law enforcement officers help plan, organize and run Special Olympics Wisconsin events, much like Nine at Night, throughout the state.
