The Mesquite Elks Lodge #2811 announces the Virgin Valley Little League 18 Hole Putting Tournament on Saturday, Mar 12 at the Sun City Pioneer Center Putting Green with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. The entry fee is a $25 Wal-Mart gift card. All proceeds are donated to the Virgin Valley Little League.

The Mesquite Elks Lodge sponsored the starting of the Little League 3 years ago. That first year approximately 75 youth participated on 11 teams. Last year, there were approximately 296 youth on 26 teams. This next year, the Virgin Valley Little League is anticipating serving 350 young boys and girls in America’s greatest sport. In the short time that the Virgin Valley Little League has been in existence, it has become the largest Little League organization in Nevada.

Young or old, you don’t have to be a good golfer or a Tiger Woods putting legend to participate in this tournament. You just have to want to have fun and support the youth in our community. Just bring one golf ball and a putter of your choice, along with a $25 Wal-Mart gift certificate and enjoy a great time.
