Recess Skate and Snow hosted a mini golf fundraiser at Sunrise Grill on September 20th to raise money for the new Boone Greenway Skatepark.

The Watauga Democrat reports the event raised more than $17,000.

According to the report, during the event, each mini golf hole was sponsored by a local business or individual, and Sunrise Grill donated all proceeds from anyone who paid to play a round of mini golf.

Food and drink trucks from The Cardinal, Booneshine Brewing Company, Appalachian Mountain Brewery and Stone Brewing also donated their proceeds from the event.

There was also a silent auction featuring local art, skate and snow products and gift cards.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the Boone Greenway Skatepark is expected to happen in October, and concrete will be poured in the spring of 2019.
