SARATOGA SPRINGS — AIM Services, Inc. has recreated its annual Croquet On the Green fundraiser. The event - now called Croquet OFF the Green, has been moved to downtown Saratoga Springs to fit Open NY recommendations.

The goal is to safely bring people to Saratoga businesses while raising awareness and funds for AIM Services - provider of services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The event takes place from July 26-Aug. 2, and also celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act which was signed into law on July 26, 1990. 

Anyone over 18 years of age can register to be an AIM Services Croquet OFF the Green player. Thirty participating Saratoga businesses will have croquet wickets on display on their entrance door or front display windows. Inside they will have scorecards and stamps to mark that you visited their store. Patronage at a store with a wicket counts as a croquet score. Every stamp gives the player an entry into the grand prize drawing. There is no limit to the number of stamps a player can receive. 

“We knew that the event had to be drastically different this year and we are thrilled to be working with the Saratoga Chamber and to be helping downtown businesses as well as the people served by AIM,” said Chris Lyons, Executive Director of AIM Services, Inc., in a statement. “We hope that as the players go from store to store to complete their wickets, they support each store and also take the opportunity to support AIM.” 

Each participating business has the option of having a donation box for AIM Services, rounding purchases up to nearest dollar as a donation, or offering a percentage of their sales to go to AIM. Participating businesses are also encouraged to promote the activity through social media and email. 

Participants can register now and view the list of participating Saratoga businesses at Players can also register at any of the 30 participating businesses.
