KidsTLC – Rooftop Pairings Party & KidsTLC Open

The rooftop terrace at Topgolf was the setting for KidsTLC’s Rooftop Pairings Party on June 7th. Guests enjoyed live music, an endless buffet and the success story of a recent client who benefited from the mission of KidsTLC. The excitement continued through the KidsTLC Open on June 11th at Shadow Glen Golf Course. Golfers enjoyed the Splash-Shot-Challenge, food and beverage stations, putt-putt and chipping contests, gifts, and the presentation of the coveted green jackets during the awards ceremony.
