The Kroger Company at 9501 Northshore Drive will be holding its 3rd annual

Putt-Putt for Charity on Saturday, June 27 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Various

charitable non-profit agencies will set up putt-putt holes in the store.

As customers shop on Saturday they'll get one free chance at a hole-in-one

on each hole. If they make the hole-in-one their name goes in a prize drawing

box, if not, they can try again for $1 per hole. All proceeds collected

at each hole go to that charity.

"What a fun way to involve our community in helping the needy,"

said Executive Director Elaine Machiela. "We cannot thank Kroger, Northshore

enough for letting Second Harvest participate in this entertaining event."

Participants in the 1998 Putt-Putt for Charity include: Second

Harvest, Florence Crittendon Agency, NBC Bank for Habitat for Humanity,

Child & Family Services, National Kidney Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation,

Arthritis Foundation and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Judges for the

most creative hole will be Mark Packer of WBIR-TV and Charles McRae (former

UT Football player).

For more information on this event call Second Harvest (521-0000) or

Kroger (693-9005).
