Friends of Oboler Library is proud to host its’ 3rd annual fundraiser KZBQ/KORR Mini Golf in the Oboler Library this Saturday, February 4.  Open play is between 10 AM and 2 PM. You can play a 9 or 18 hole course.

This is a great opportunity to promote your club, fraternity, or sorority by sponsoring and decorating a hole.  Complete some service hours and greet players as they play through and tell them about who you are and what you do on campus!

For more information on the course and sponsorships, click here.  This fundraiser’s proceeds will go to the Oboler Library for materials and acquisitions.

Admission is $5  per person, or $20 for a family.  There will be a bake sale and beverages available.
