Nathan Darnell, the event organizer, said the idea came about to bring together his love of disc golf with charity work.

“When I was younger, I was actually a child that needed toys from Toys for Tots, and this was an idea to kind of combine two different things,” Darnell said. “I figured this would be a great way all of us, many of the players here are family members, fathers, husbands, so on and so forth. And it would be a good way to get all of us together to give back to the community.”

The winner of the pro-am tournament also received a cash prize to take home to their family for the holidays.
