If you owed someone a penny for every putt you've ever stroked in your life, that probably amounts to a lot of pennies. That's exactly the idea behind the Pennies for Putts fundraiser.
Five years ago, then eighth-grader Joe Tigani decided to play golf to raise money for The First Tee of Delaware. The concept has evolved, and, this year, eight high schoolers played 100 holes of golf in a single day. The eightsome began their day with 36 holes at Ed Oliver Golf Club before heading to Fieldstone Golf Club for another 28, then ended the day by playing each course at Wilmington Country Club.
Some gave a flat donation. Some pledged money for each hole played. In total, the event is expected to raise some $5,000 for The First Tee.
