Trenton, New Jersey – The 6TH Annual Adam Shanks Mission Miniature Masters Tournament will take place on February 26th (snow date March 5th) at the Rescue Mission of Trenton.

The miniature golf tournament takes place indoors within the Rescue Mission facility.  Two 9- hole golf courses are designed and constructed by the Mission’s residents and run throughout the halls of the Mission’s various buildings. “It’s absolutely amazing what you make from an old pallet, wooden crate, a bed sheet, some aluminum studs, elevator rope, 4 hose clamps, 2 curtain rods, 4 barrel lids, 1 door knob, 2 shelf brackets, 4 spray can lids and miscellaneous plumbing washers if you are creative,” said Mary Gay Abbott-Young, the Mission’s CEO.

The event starts at 11:30 am.  A complete barbecue lunch is served in the main dining room beginning at 12:45 pm. At 1:30 pm, silent auction winners are announced and awards presented to Mercer County’s best putters.

The cost per golfer is only $50 or $175 for a foursome including lunch.  Hole Sponsorships are available at $125 per hole.  This year’s event is being co-sponsored by the Shanks Family, The Penguin Group, Hutchinson Industries, and Wilmington Trust. The Borden Perlman Agency is once again hosting the fantastic “summer time” barbecue lunch.

Proceeds from the event support the Rescue Mission’s work to remove barriers that prevent individuals from being self-sufficient and leading healthy lives.  “We are facing severe loss of revenue from government sources, which makes this fundraiser even more critical,” notes Bonnie Baker, President of the Rescue Mission’s Board of Directors.  “At the same we know others are tightening their belts, so we did not raise prices for this year’s tournament,” she added.

For further information on participating in 6TH Annual Adam Shanks Mission Miniature Masters Tournament, call Irwin Stoolmacher at (609)-393-0855.  Spaces are limited so call early.
