Children's museum Golf for a Good Cause raises $350
Rockport — The Coastal Children’s Museum and Golfer’s Grossing put the fun in fundraising during its mini golf fundraiser held Aug. 23-24 at Golfer's Crossing.

More than 150 golfers, including families with and without children, had a great time and fantastic weather while playing the challenging and fun course, raising $350 for the weekend.
“We are so appreciative of Richard and Wendy Crossman and their support of our mission,“ said board president of the museum, Elaine Wilson. “They were so helpful to us and we enjoyed spending time at their wonderful course.”
A raffle was held as well with prizes ranging from a sail on the Schooner Summertime to a Birthday Pizza Party at the Coastal Children’s Museum. Other great prizes were donated by Goose River Golf Course, Blue Sky Cantina, Dominoes Pizza, Rock City Coffee, Planet Toys, and Blake Vet.
