The 2018 Books 4 Kids Lantern Festival was a huge success!
The Adult/Youth Golf Tournament had perfect weather, and what a treat to see the kids' reaction to their prizes!
Jace Christensen was the winner of the 13-18 year-old bracket. He won an Annual Youth Membership to Lake Region Golf Course! He and his partner Tyler Christensen were also presented with a trophy.
Ryker Warrington was the winner of the 8-12 year-old bracket. Ryker won a brand new set of youth golf clubs with travel cover and of course, a trophy to share with his partner Scott.
Trysten Huntimer was the winner of our 4-7 year-old bracket. He also won a brand new set of youth golf clubs with travel cover, and his own trophy to share with his golf buddy Ryan Huntimer.
A 3 and under bracket was added to the tournament, and the competition was fierce... for those who stayed awake through all nine holes. The ultimate winner was 2-year-old Kendall Reed! Kendall won her own set of plastic toddler clubs with the help of her partner and bear protector, Mitch Reed.

Guests personalized their lanterns with messages to loved ones, notes of accomplishment, dreams and aspirations, or anything else that touched their heart. The lanterns were launched at 10:30 pm. (We had wonderful volunteers who launched lanterns for our distant friends.)
