Craftsman hits hole in one for charity

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — The Craftsman brand spent Father's Day weekend in Philadelphia with hard core golf fans and putt-putt enthusiasts at the Craftsman Father's Day Miniature Golf Classic.

Attendees were invited to play a free round on the one-of-a-kind miniature golf course specially built by the Craftsman brand and designed by former professional golfer and analyst Gary McCord, featuring Craftsman tools at every hole.  

For every hole-in-one, the Craftsman brand pledged to donate $100, up to $10,000 total, to nonprofit Rebuilding Together through Sears Heroes at Home, a program to support military service members and their families.

Throughout two days, attendees putted enough hole-in-ones to reach the $10,000 goal. The Craftsman Father's Day Miniature Golf Classic was one stop along the route of the Craftsman Make a Difference Tour — a cross-country journey of a 36-ft. truck to help rebuild American communities and restore homes of military veterans.
