A fundraiser to be held at the Island Green Family Fun Center at the end of September is designed to shine a light on breast cancer.
The event, Swing for Pink, will be held 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 28 at Island Green. It's being held in partnership with Island Green Family Fun Center, the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, Carroll Hospital and 101.9FM radio.
"There's probably nobody out there that hasn't been touched by either this specific cancer or others," Chamber of Commerce President Mike McMullin said.
"This is such an awesome thing that we have going on here," he said. "Carroll has a great heart."
Donna Biemiller, marketing director of Island Green, said those who come out will be able to purchase pink golf balls that will be dropped from a certain height. Whoever's ball is closest to a chosen location will get half of the money in the raffle. The other half will go toward the hospital, she added.
Biemiller said everyone, including families, should come out. Those there can use the batting park, the miniature golf course and all of the other amenities Island Green has on offer.
"It's just going to be a great night for everybody," she added.
Biemiller said she wanted to do a local fundraiser for breast cancer treatment since there is no longer a local Susan G. Komen fundraiser. She wanted to do something in Carroll County so that its residents can support those in their community, she added.
