In Fayetteville, the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Northwest Arkansas was testing the putting game of a few golfers.
Gator Golf hosted a mini-golf tournament, raising money for the SPSF.
The SPSF is a a non-profit organization helping create brighter futures for single parent families by offering access to higher education.
The putt-putt fun included lunch, a t-shirt as well as a goody bag and gave students a little study break, while also making a greater impact.
"Local businesses have an opportunity to support the scholarship fund which really supports our whole economy," says Joey Dilday, executive director for the SPSF.
"When we move low income single families out of poverty and into jobs that pay a living wage, they're able to buy homes and contribute in the economy and participate."
SPSF of Northwest Arkansas serves Carroll, Madison and Washington counties and is one of 60 affiliates throughout Arkansas.
