January 10, 2020

TOMS RIVER - Ocean County Library’s Toms River Branch, 101 Washington St., will be transformed into a miniature golf course during a two-day fundraiser by the Ocean County Library Foundation.

The 4th annual “Links with the Masters” will be held Friday, March 6 and Saturday, March 7. Golf attire is suggested to add to the fun atmosphere of the event, but is not required.

Friday’s adult-only (21+) event will start at 7 p.m. with cocktails and light fare. Tournament play will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $75 per player or $50 per spectator. A portion of the ticket price is tax deductible.

Saturday’s event starts at 10 a.m. and will run to 3 p.m. All ages are welcome to play a round of mini golf with a suggested donation of $3 per child and $5 per adult. Advance tickets are not required.

Sponsorship opportunities for the event are also available.

All proceeds go to the Ocean County Library Foundation, which is a certified 501 (C) (3) organization. The Foundation was established in 2001 to support the Ocean County Library through fundraising for non-traditional library programs and services not covered by tax dollars. It is committed toward the goal of enhancing all library services, programs, and facilities to foster an appreciation and awareness of the Ocean County Library in the community.
