Disc golfers come out for 12th K-Town Ice Bowl to help local charities
KALKASKA COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- The 12th K-Town Ice Bowl took place at Log Lake Park in Kalkaska Sunday.
The goal of the event was to raise $10,000 and collect food for local charities, Meals on Wheels of Kalkaska and K.A.I.R, the local food bank.
More than 100 people played in a disc golf tournament that featured 27 holes.
To play they could either pay $30 or bring 40 pounds of non-perishable food items.
The event also included a fire, food and raffle prizes.
Organizers say charities depend on this event during the winter months.
"It means a lot, there's a lot of hungry people in this world and they're right here in our community so I should say there's a lot of people right here in our community so it's a huge impact," said Eric Lucyk, the director of the K-Town Ice Bowl Tournament.
Lucyk says they did reach their goal of 10,000 cans of non-perishable food items.
