Ice Bowl raises cash for charity

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – The 24th annual Ice Bowl was held in Huntington’s Rotary Park on Saturday.

More than 144 disc golfers came out to raise funds that year, most of it in tournament history.

To practice social distancing, there was a ten-minute tee time interval and only four people per group.

“I really want to thank these golfers for being out here in 19 degrees,” said Andy Harshbarger, tournament director. “If it weren’t for them, we couldn’t do any of that.”

The event typically raises about 500 to 1,000 pounds of food to be donated to the Facing Hunger Food Bank and also raises about $ 2,500 to donate.

“It feels good to go down there and know that everyone has given.” said Harshbarger. “They love helping them and it’s a good time, especially this is the time everyone needs help and hopefully they will appreciate it.”

There are more than 150 ice bowls nationwide in the USA
