About the FUNraiser
It’s almost time for the Friends of the Library’s most anticipated annual event, the Mini Golf FUN Raiser! This fun Yorkville tradition is a popular community event that breaks up the post-holiday doldrums with 18 holes of festive, family-friendly mini golf played INSIDE the library! After the excitement of the holidays wears off and cabin fever is settling in, the Mini Golf FUN Raiser is just the ticket for families to get out of the house and have some fun! Locals love this off-beat Yorkville tradition where 18 uniquely themed holes of mini golf are set up and played inside the Yorkville Public Library, creating family memories, and building a sense of community through sportsmanship, creativity, and good, clean fun!
Don’t forget to grab your tickets! Tickets for the Mini Golf FUN Raiser can be purchased in advance or at the door the day of the event. Each ticket is good for one round of golf for one patron. Tickets are not required for attendees who do not wish to golf. Mini golf tickets are $5 per golfer regardless of which purchasing method you select. Please note that all ticket sales for this event are nonrefundable.
Tickets can be purchased at the Yorkville Public Library Circulation Desk during library hours beginning Friday, November 24. Please note that in-person ticket sales at the library are cash-only. This is the only way to get a physical ticket. Mini Golf FUN Raiser tickets make excellent stocking stuffers and great gifts for families looking to give experiences rather than items this year!
