The Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department and Iowa City Public Library will host the first ever Tee Off for Swimming and Reading Golf Classic on Friday, Sept. 8, 2017, at Finkbine Golf Course, 1380 Melrose Ave. The goal of the event is to generate funds for children’s books and programs at the Library, as well as support the Parks and Recreation swim scholarship program. Proceeds will help ensure that all local kids who want to learn to swim are able to, regardless of their family’s ability to pay for lessons. The event begins with lunch at 11:30 a.m. Tee times begin at 1 p.m.
For participating golfers, the cost to play is $125 per person or $400 per foursome, and includes green fees and a box lunch. There are also several corporate participation levels available ranging from a $100 corporate sign sponsorship to a $300 hole sponsorship. Each level offers different opportunities to market or promote a business, product, or organization.
