In a world where technology continues to strive to dominate our day, it’s reassuring to see that a mountain of glow sticks, illuminated golf balls, bee-bop music and some sweet treats can successfully engage a group of kiddos – at least for a few hours.
As Pat McGowan pointed out – when you walk around these activities, you’re not going to see a cell phone, the kids are enjoying being in the moment, getting something positive out of their experience and simply being kids.
Now, that makes for a breath of fresh air. And something worth writing about!
Last weekend’s Glow Ball Night festivities in Fayetteville and Whispering Pines were truly a fun filled winter finale. A celebration where kids giggled, golfed and gamed with their new and old friends.
99 of them to be exact.
Whether they were on the Galaxy Golf Course, Cosmic Tic-Tac-Toe board or competing in an intense game of Laser Toss – the real winner of the evening was FUN. Glow-tastic fun, that is.
All thanks to Gates Four Golf & CC, Country Club of Whispering Pines, Pinehurst Resort and many of our highly enthusiastic volunteers!
It’s just another nod to how successful we can be when Community comes together.
Because, together, we can do so much!
