Fundraiser for boy whose cooling vest was stolen

SCHWENKSVILLE, Pa. -

Wet weather isn't exactly ideal golfing weather,  but some folks opted to "putter around" on the green, anyway, for a good cause.

Waltz Golf Farm in Montgomery County held a fundraiser Tuesday for 5-year-old Wyatt Darling of Schwenksville.

We told you about him last week.

He suffers from a rare genetic skin disorder that requires him to wear a cooling vest to control his body temperature.

Recently, that vest was stolen.

Today's event raised money to help Wyatt's family buy a new one and to pay his medical bills.

It featured mini-golf, a raffle, and an appearance from the Philly Phanatic!
