EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Several Wisconsinites traded their shovels for golf clubs Saturday afternoon.
A record crowd spent their Saturday golfing in the snow on Lake Wissota.
The nine-hole golf tournament held at "The Edge" is a fundraiser for Feed My People food bank.
Organizers say snow golf or "snolf" is a great way to enjoy the winter weather while supporting people in need.
"Every dollar translates into four meals for needy folks in the Chippewa Valley," explains event organizer, Craig Feiler. "That really has translated into almost 79,000 meals that this event has provided for folks in the Chippewa valley, and we're quite proud of that."
Participants used tennis balls instead of golf balls, making it easier to navigate in the snow.
In the last six years, the event has raised nearly $20,000 dollars.
