Monmouth Park will host the first-ever Joes vs. Jocks Mini Golf Festival sponsored by Monmouth Medical Center’s “Roll Out The Ribbons” campaign on Friday, July 26 at the new Bluegrass Mini Golf course.  The event will serve as the kickoff to William Hill Haskell Weekend and help raise money and awareness for the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund.   

            Taking place from 6pm-10pm after the races, the Joes vs. Jocks Mini Golf Festival will feature mini golf, food trucks, a live band and much more.

            As part of the festival, 36 foursomes will have the opportunity to play 18 holes of mini golf with members of the Monmouth Park jockey colony as well as other racing personalities.  Each foursome costs $100 and also includes unlimited mini golf the rest of the night, a VIP gift bag, commemorative scorecard, souvenir ball, and prizes to the top finishers.

            “On behalf of the Monmouth Park jockey colony, I’m very excited to be a part of this first-time event,” said 13-time leading Monmouth Park jockey Joe Bravo.  “I look forward to helping kick off Haskell weekend and being able to play golf with some of the great Monmouth Park fans.  It’s nice to see Monmouth Park come up with such an exciting new event for such a great cause.”

            For “walk-up” golfers, wristbands for unlimited mini golf with family and friends will be sold for $20 for adults, $15 for children 12 and under.

            Three food trucks will be in attendance for the Joes vs. Jocks Mini Golf Festival:  Jersey Shore staple Max’s Hot Dogs, Pizza Vita – home of award-winning Neapolitan pizza – and Kona Ice Italian Ice.   

            The festival’s music will be performed live by the Rachel Allan Band, courtesy of Rockin’ Country Thunder 106.3FM.  Thunder106 will also broadcast live from the event with multiple games and giveaways throughout the night.   

            Title sponsor Monmouth Medical Center will also be on-site at the event raising money and awareness for their summer-long “Roll Out The Ribbons” campaign.  More information on that cause can be found at www.rollouttheribbons.com.
