The Friends of the Larchmont Public Library are announcing the second annual Larchmont Open Miniature Golf Tournament, scheduled to take place on Sunday, February 10, from 11:00am until 3:00pm, inside the Larchmont Public Library. The tournament is open to all ages and works as a unique fund-raising event that benefits the library. There will also be a special tee-off opening reception and raffle for adults held in the library from 6:00 to 9:00pm on Saturday, February 10. Since the events are fundraisers that benefit the Larchmont Public Library, advance tickets are required.

Space is limited, so it is recommended that interested
participants get their tickets early.
Nearly 200 individuals played Mini Golf in the debut tournament that was held in February 2018. Combined ticket sales, sponsorships and items that were auctioned during the 2018 tournament raised $15,000 for the Larchmont Public Library. Like last year, local businesses and individuals are sponsoring each of the 18 holes along the library mini-golf course, making the tournament a community-wide event.
"We held our first ever mini-golf tournament last year and it was a resounding success", said Rich Levy, President of the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library. "Not only did we exceed our expectations in raising funds for the Library, it was great to see so many kids and adults come out in the depths of winter for some library-based fun, supporting the Library while playing mini-golf inside it. Everyone had a great time doing it! Because the Library is a centerpiece of our community, we have every reason to hope that our second Mini-Golf event will be an even bigger success in support of the Larchmont Public Library."
To facilitate the Larchmont Open, the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library are again partnering with LMG Library Mini Golf based in Trumbull, CT. LMG grew out of an idea to raise money to aid Gulf Coast libraries that had experienced damage from Hurricane Katrina. The public library in Trumbull, CT, hosted the very first min-golf tournament inside a library in the Fall of 2005, turning the library into a complete 18-hole miniature golf course. Needless to say, the event was a tremendous success and the company now works with public and private libraries throughout the Northeast.
The Friends of the Larchmont Library are interested residents who contribute to the Library in important ways. Government funding alone cannot finance all the cultural events that our community currently enjoys. The Friends of the Larchmont Public Library is an independent 501c(3) not-for-profit organization that provides money needed for additional programs and events as well books, furnishings, and other needs the library has.
