Golf tournament raises funds for all-inclusive playground

Posted at 8:21 PM, Sep 07, 2018

Golfers hit the links Friday to help raise funds for a playground for children with special needs.

The local non-profit Jack’s Helping Hand hosted the tournament. The goal is to build what they’re calling Jack’s Ready Imagination Park in the Nipomo Mesa. It’s an all-inclusive park, designed to help kids who are battling cancer or who have special needs.

"What Jack’s Helping Hand and the Imagination Park is all about is including everybody, regardless of your abilities anybody can go," said Russ Lovell, President of Jack’s Helping Hand.

Jack’s Helping Hand has been raising funds for the park since 2012. To date, the organization has raised about $500,000.

Construction on Jack’s Ready Imagination Park is slated to begin later this year.
