LKA Life & Times photo First Annual Mini-Golf Tournament Reflects Everything Good About LKA Community On October 18 the Lake Anna Business Partnership (LABP) headed into “unchart- ed waters” and held a mini-golf tourna- ment for members and their guests. This was a first of its kind event at the lake and a significant investment was made into ca- tering, signage, trophies and more. As the organizer of the night and an LABP Board member, I was hoping that the weather would cooperate and that folks would turn out. Well, Mother Nature provided us with a beautiful evening of 80-degree, clear weather, a cool breeze off the water and we had an almost overwhelming response. There were adults and kids enjoying our famed Lake Anna lifestyle after Labor Day literally swarming all over the beautiful, new Boardwalk Mini Golf course. We had 71 players amongst the nearly 100 total guests in attendance, and began with an exciting shotgun start (in LKA fashion we blew an air horn). Vito’s did the catering, another local fa- vorite, and everyone enjoyed the Taormina family’s culinary expertise. What made the event a further success was the support of the business commu- nity in stepping up to sponsor holes, a Hole-In-One Challenge, the trophies and the actual event itself. I and the LABP are grateful to folks like Marie Snyder of Lake Anna Linens and the ownership of this publication, Chris and Chrissie McCotter, for being title sponsors of the tournament. Libby Sandridge sponsored the very pop- ular Hole-In-One Challenge and should be thanked here for her support and great idea. Other area businesses that spon- sored the event include C&F Mortgage Lake Anna Caretakers, Cedar Knoll Boat & RV Storage, Sterling Aero Marine Ser- vices, FAMM Floor Covering, Blueswipe Card Processing, Davenport & Co., Virgin- ia Community Bank, Winget Hernandez PC, Primary Mortgage, Fulton Mortgage, Dockside Realty, LKABookkeeping and Northern Virginia Title & Escrow. A huge note of gratitude must also go to Dave, Mark, Steve and Gary from Board- walk Mini Golf and The Boardwalk at Lake Anna. The plan was to bring the business peo- ple of the community together to enjoy an evening and highlight Lake Anna after La- bor Day. We also hoped to raise funds for our charity partner for the evening; Min- eral Volunteer Fire & Rescue. The plan worked well with the laughter and strong participation from both adults and children as proof. We were also fortunate to be able to do- nate $246 to our local volunteers and a guest further donated $100 more. Coming together to break bread and en- joy a friendly competition is a simple no- tion but not always so simple to pull off. Based on the success of this event, I am happy to say we’ll do it again next fall and maybe even consider doing one in the spring. If you are looking for a great group of folks that live and work around the lake, consider joining the Lake Anna Business Partnership. Even if you don’t own a busi- ness, you can join as a Social Member and enjoy the 12 Business After Hours events held every third Tuesday of the month at a different lake area venue. Check out www.visitlakeanna.org for membership info. Our next Business After Hours will be held at The Cove, 6:30 on November 15. Lastly, I’d like to thank my son Troy Moskowitz for helping me throughout the evening and doing a great job on the Hole-In-One Challenge.
