Arlington High School putts for patients

By: Cora Flanagan

On November 21st the Arlington High School Class of 2016 will be welcoming students, families, staff, and community members of all ages to participate in “Putting for Patients”, an indoor mini-golf tournament held in the Toczylowski (Red) Gym at Arlington High School.

This event will be held in the memory of classmate Catherine Malatesta. Catherine was a patient at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana Farber when she wasn’t an in-patient at Boston Children’s Hospital. The money being raised will help allow Dana Farber to continue research on cancer therapies in order to give children more hope and a chance to defeat cancer.

The tournament will feature a variety of competitions such as long-putt, individual and team play, and a March Madness-style tournament! Other activities will include music, face painting, snacks, a caricaturist, and more. It is a $10 registration fee for youth/students and $15 registration fee for adults. To enter any computations, it is a $5 contribution, and raffle tickets will be sold throughout the day for $5

Special prizes for the Early Bird Special are included (valued at $10) if you sign up before November 18!  Prizes will also be awarded for the top team and individual, the long putt contest, and the team that raises the most pledge money.
