The 12th annual Play a Round for Kids took place Monday, June 18, 2018, at the championship Omni Interlocken Golf Club in Broomfield, Colorado.

After enjoying breakfast and a Bloody Mary bar, participants began play at 9:00 am in a scramble-style format. At the turn, the foursomes took part in a free putting contest before finishing out their rounds.

The Omni Interlocken’s high elevation provides sweeping panoramic views of the Rockies and the Front Range. “The views up here are just spectacular,” said 12-time tournament participant Dan Hines.

A new feature this year was a compressed-air ball launcher. For a $25 donation, players tried out the launcher, which sent the ball soaring up to 350 feet. View a video of the launcher here.

After play was over, the golfers enjoyed a delicious luncheon. Participants who brought an item of children’s clothing for Mount Saint Vincent’s summer clothing drive were entered into a drawing for a Weekend Resort Getaway at the Omni Interlocken, which included an overnight stay, breakfast, and golf for two.

The annual tournament raises funds to help provide treatment for children with severe emotional and behavioral challenges due to trauma, mental illness, abuse or neglect. “We’re grateful for all the players and event sponsors who supported this effort,” said Mount Saint Vincent’s Director of Development Cindy Liverance. “These funds go a long way toward treatment and healing of dozens of children in need.”
