Topgolf for Kids' Sake raises $160,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado

Posted

More than 600 golfers gathered for the first Topgolf For Kids' Sake event to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado.

At the Centennial facility, golfers enjoyed three hours of competitions, played minute-to-win-it games and won prizes, while raising more than $160,000 to support the organization.

The event replaced the agency's longstanding Bowl for Kids' Sake event.

“While bowling was always a lot of fun, we felt it was time to try something new to add new energy to our fall fundraiser,” Dave Ryan, president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado, said in a news release. “Topgolf is cutting edge technology, and you don't have to be an expert golfer to partake in the fun.”

Money was raised through corporate sponsorships, and the event featured a crowdsourcing fundraising model allowing participants to solicit donations via an online platform.
