Downtown bars to host charity pub golf
December 12, 2013
Downtown Hudson bars Pudge’s Bar, Stone Tap, Dick’s Bar and Grill, Agave Kitchen, and Ellie’s On Main are sponsoring a charity Pub Golf event on from 8–11 p.m., on Saturday, December 14.
Teams of four can pre-register for the event at Pudge’s. Registration fees are $40 per team prior to the event and $50 for day-of-registration.
One hundred percent of all registration fees will be donated to Operation HELP’s Christmas Campaign. Operation HELP is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help people who reside within St. Croix County with rent, utilities and special needs assistance. They also serve as a resource center and assist people in connecting with other service agencies. The Christmas Campaign finds sponsoring families to provide children’s gifts for families in the Hudson School District. More information about Operation HELP and the Christmas Campaign can be found at www.operationhelpstcroix.org.
Pub Golf is a twist on a classic pub crawl. The game is simple; teams of four receive a scorecard and travel to the host bars. The drinks are already selected and assigned to stroke counts. Teams elect which stroke counts to try: bogey, birdie, par, or eagle.
Just as in golf, there will be some water hazards and bunkers but the object to score the lowest possible points is the same.
Prizes will be awarded to the top teams. First place will win four tickets to a Wild game, second place wins four Twins tickets and third and fourth place get a round of golf at Badlands. Numerous other prizes for participants will be given away including Beats headphones, a Weber grill, a bicycle and a golf bag.
To help brighten a Hudson child’s holiday season, get a team together and send a representative to pre-register at Pudge’s, 302 Second St., or for more information contact Pudge’s at 715-386-9975.
