MAD HATTER’S TEE PARTY

Santa Fe Railyard Park will be transformed with scenes from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass on Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15. Students from May Center for Learning will install a ten-hole miniature golf course, with designs based on Lewis Carroll’s classic books.

The course will take mini-golfers young and old on a walking tour throughout the award-winning ten-acre park, as they test their skills against cunningly conceived holes including “Though the Looking-Glass,” “Alice’s Pool of Tears,” “The Cheshire Cat,” “Down the Rabbit Hole,” and “The Queen’s Croquet Match.” Along the route, golfers will be entertained by May Center students costumed as Carroll’s characters and performing excerpts from the stories.

“The Mad Hatter’s Tee Party” launches on Friday, July 14, with the Gala Inaugural Putt-Off. This ticketed event, which includes libations and supper on the grounds as well as mini-golfing, benefits May Center for Learning’s satellite tutoring program in Santa Fe-area public schools.

“Our event reflects May Center’s philosophy,” says Executive Director Amy Miller. “This is the golf event different for the city different created by students different. They’ve used their imaginations and ingenuity to craft something that is new and inclusive, rather than exclusive. Our event motto is: No Clubs? No Cart? No Course? No Problem!!!”
