The city of Kentwood and Great Lakes Disc are partnering to host the sixth annual Freeze Fest doubles disc golf tournament and food drive at 10 a.m. Feb. 20 at Jaycee Park, 1088 Gentian Drive SE.
Disc golfers of all levels are invited to bring a partner and participate in the competition.
“Great Lakes Disc is happy to host the Freeze Fest with the Kentwood Parks and Recreation Department for our sixth consecutive year,” said Shea Abbgy, owner of Great Lakes Disc. “We’re excited about this event’s continued growth, which allows us to give back to the community in a very tangible way.”
In addition to the competition, individuals can donate nonperishable food and personal care items at the event, which will go to Kentwood’s Little Free Pantry. The pantry is opened year-round to fill an immediate and local need.
“It’s always incredible to watch community members come together in support of Kentwood initiatives,” said Lori Gresnick, Kentwood recreation program coordinator. “The disc golf community is no exception. We are grateful so many disc golfers join us at our annual tournaments for some friendly competition and to generously restock the Little Free Pantry.”
Kentwood’s Little Free Pantry is located at Kentwood Activities Center, 355 48th St. SE. The city of Kentwood recently launched another Little Free Pantry at the Kent District Library – Kentwood (Richard L. Root) Branch, 4950 Breton Ave. SE because of the increased need that derived from COVID-19.
On-site registration begins at 9 a.m. and the first round of the tournament starts at 10 a.m. Pre-registration can be done online at kentwood.us/freezefest. The cost is $40 and one canned food donation per team. All proceeds will go to support Kentwood’s Little Free Pantry. More information is available at kentwood.us/littlefreepantry.
