According to Carrie Moser, the director of engagement at Black Hills Works, “Funds raised by this event help ensure that the people that we support are able to be involved in our community — whether that be through our Rapid City Storm Olympic Special Olympics team or just getting out and about going to Rush games, participating in summer nights, just living full and healthy lives in our community.”

The fundraising goal for the event was $30,000. The funds raised will go towards supporting the various programs that Black Hills Works offers, making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities in the community.

The Celebrities:

The event also featured celebrity putters at each hole, allowing participants to meet the people they were helping.
