Lincoln Putt Putt Approaching Quickly

The Lincoln Putt Putt is quickly approaching.

The annual fundraiser benefitting local community organizations returns for its 15th year Saturday, April 29. Not only is it a true community fundraiser, but one the Lincoln community supports both financially and with man hours.

In the past, the event organized by Bonnie Christian has benefitted organizations such as the Lincoln Ambulance, the Lincoln Senior Center, and the historic Lincoln Community Hall. This year, they also plan to contribute to the student athletics department, the Little League program, and the Business Professionals Association (BPA). Students from the athletics, little league, and BPA will be volunteering at the event as well.

Students from some of those organizations are selling "Fun in the Sun" raffle tickets for a great prizes that includes a six-man raft, four-man raft, four single rafts with a cooler raft, oars, life jackets and more. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20 and can be purchased from local students. Winners will be drawn at the end of the Putt Putt at the Lincoln Community Hall and winners need not be present to win.

Local students will also be selling hamburgers and hot dogs at the Power House Gym to raise money. Everyone is welcome, not just Putt Putt participants.

This year, the plan is to have two putting greens at each location to help move participants through in a timely manner. It all ends at the Community Hall with the silent auction and a meal, with food donated by local businesses and side dishes from people in the community. If someone would like to contribute to the meal, please contact Bonnie to coordinate.

There will be many items donated by local community businesses and individuals available for bidding to further assist fundraising efforts.

Later in the evening, plan to listen and dance to music by the live band Hip Shake, at the Wilderness Bar.

People can get a form to register themselves or a team at local downtown businesses. Registration is $10 per person or $50 per team of five. Players do need to be 18 years of age or older to register. Registration forms can also be downloaded from the new Putt Putt website at

Help is always needed to set up for the event and it wouldn't happen without the support of local businesses, volunteers, and donations. For more information on how you can help, to donate items for the silent auction, or to the event in general, please contact Bonnie Christian at [email protected].
