Helen Ross McNabb Foundation hosts inaugural Shenanigans fundraising event

The Helen Ross McNabb Foundation is excited to announce a brand new event — Sunset Shenanigans Cosmic Drive and Putt. This one-of-a-kind fundraiser will be held on Monday, October 18 at The Club at Gettysvue. An exciting addition to the Foundation’s event portfolio, Sunset Shenanigans will support programs and services that serve thousands of children, adults and families in East Tennessee.

Teams of four will participate in a cosmic target golf challenge and a cosmic putting contest. Players will have an entirely new golf experience, playing once the sun goes down on a glow-in-the-dark driving range. Local vendors will provide an array of fun food and drinks.

“The McNabb Center does important work in our community, serving people who struggle with mental illness and substance use,” said Russ Watkins, President and CEO of Partners Development. “It is an honor to sponsor this unique event and support the Center while enjoying an evening of golf.”
