The Queer Utah Aquatic Club is to hold its first annual Adopt a Duck Golf Tournament and Fundraiser at TopGolf  on Saturday, October 6, 9 a.m.-noon, 920 Jordan River Blvd., Midvale.

Entry into the fundraising tournament is $500 for a team of six. Proceeds will go towards helping QUAC athletes attend swim meets and water polo tournaments such as the 2020 IGLA Championships in Melbourne, Australia.

Salt Lake City has many great clubs and non-profit organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community. QUAC’s goal with Adopt a Duck is to not only raise funds for our organization, but also to build more camaraderie and share our collective missions of supporting and celebrating diversity within the community.

If you’re not a part of a team of six, but still interested in attending, QUAC will put you on a team that will provide you with extensive networking and friendship-building opportunities. Follow this link to sign up as an individual participant, and the cost is $85.
