Kearney, Neb., April 5, 2013 – University of Nebraska at Kearney Rotaract is sponsoring its first “Putting for a Purpose” mini golf tournament on April 13, at Cushing Fieldhouse. The “purpose” for the event is to increase awareness about human trafficking.

The event is free and open to the public, and is scheduled to run from 6-10 p.m. Teams of three can sign up the day of the tournament, or those who want priority in line can sign up prior to the event in the Nebraskan Student Union Atrium starting April 8. The members of the winning team will each receive a Nexus 7 tablet.

The club’s goal is to raise awareness about human trafficking and to inform students about what can be done to help this worldwide cause. Food and drinks will be provided, as well as live music and other entertainment. A speaker from the A21 campaign will also be present to share information about human trafficking.

Every hole on the course will be built by a UNK student organization to show their support for the Rotaract club and the cause. For more information, visit or
