Putt-Up @ Word Up Fundraiser This Weekend

Putt Up at @ Word Up Weekend Mini-Golf Extravaganza & Awesome Raffle


12pm to 4pm
 each day

Astroturf in a bookshop? Well, this ain’t just any bookshop. Putt Up at Word Up is a mini-golf extravaganza, with local artists and kids designing each hole, and with all proceeds going toward covering operational expenses for Word Up. Come for the chance to play golf in a bookstore! Come to admire or participate in the artistic creation of mini-golf holes! Come for the cupcakes! Come to support Word Up! Come for the raffle– details below! It won’t be expensive– just $1 to golf and $2 (or 3/$5) for raffle tickets, so you can still pick up that book you’ve been flirting with buying.
Music, commentary, and audience responses will be recorded and webcast live both days on Washington Heights Free Radio (www.WHFR.org)

Win raffle prizes—like Yankees tickets!—generously donated by local businesses:

Cachapas Y Mas (Patacon Con Too)

Canvas Society

Coogan’s Restaurant

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que


The Peralta Project

Sano Health Food Center


Victor’s Bicycle

and more

A different prize will be raffled off each hour, and ONE of these amazing prizes will be given away on Twitter, so make sure you are following @wordupbooks to win.

BONUS: Join us Friday, August 12, 4-9pm for the Works-in-Progress Day, when you can watch the bookshop at work and participate in designing holes for the weekend’s mini-golf extravaganza.  There will be lots of group designing going on, and all ages are more than welcome!
