Red Cross benefit golf challenge
SANDUSKY On May 9, Cedar Point amusement park/resort will host the 16th annual American Red Cross Miniature Golf Challenge. Proceeds from this special event will help raise money for the Firelands Chapter of the American Red Cross.
The tournament will take place at Cedar Point's Challenge Park and will be a four-person, 36-hole scramble. Registration will begin at 4 p.m. with a shotgun start at 4:30 p.m. Teams of four can enter the challenge for $120 or individuals can enter for $30 each and will be placed on a team. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams. Deadline for registration is April 30.

The winner will receive an overnight stay in a 10th floor Horizon Suite in Breakers Tower, which includes a Jacuzzi and panoramic views of Lake Erie, on June 8, along with four one-day admission tickets to Cedar Point. A special hole-in-one contest will also be held.

For a $50 sponsorship fee per hole, the name of the business or individual will be featured on a special sign placed at the tee of their sponsored holes.
