Miniature golf course hosts national qualifying tournament to raise funds for children at the Kennedy Krieger Institute

(Baltimore, MD) - With lucky putters in hand, miniature golfers will be sinking their best putts at the 2nd Annual Festival of TEES golf tournament to raise money for children with cerebral palsy and spina bifida. ParTee Golf, in Perry Hall, MD, will host the tournament on Saturday, August 16 to benefit children at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. In addition to raising critical funds for Kennedy Krieger, players will be competing for the chance to claim miniature golf's most prestigious award, The Harris Cup!

The Festival of TEES is Baltimore's only national qualifier miniature golf tournament. Players will compete for two spots in the National Harris Cup Miniature Golf Finals on September 27, 2008 in Turnersville, NJ, where $10,000 in prize money is up for grabs, along with the title of "National Miniature Golf Champion". In fact, last year's Division 2 National Miniature Golf Champion was a winner of the Festival of TEES tournament!
