This unique event brings out fierce competition for some and downright silly for others.

Held annually at the 49er Fun Park, The Friendship 100 is the Friendship Club’s largest fundraising event.

Twenty-five community members commit to raising at least $1,000 for the honor of racing the go-carts, while 36 teams of four descend on the mini-golf course over two tournaments.
