The goal is to raise $100,000, event organizer Mia Dunn said,
adding that last year's event raised $93,000. The event is one of the
top three fundraisers that the organization presents in order to
raise money for its $3.4-million annual operating budget. Other
events include the motorcycle ride "Hogs for Dogs" in September and
the annual Walk for the Animals in October.
More than 80% of each dollar raised during the event goes toward
animal care, spokeswoman Ricky Whitman said.
"As an open-door shelter, we take responsibility for any animal in
our service area. All animals are welcome here," she said.
Participants in the event should have a ball, organizers said.
The event will feature a golf scramble that begins at 10:30 a.m.
A doubles tennis event begins at 1 p.m. Also included will be
putting, long drive and hole-in-one contests. An awards dinner will
follow the day's activities at 5 p.m.
Participants can sign up the day of the event.
Golf packages start at $295 per person and will include tee
prizes, a barbecue lunch and admission to the awards dinner. The $75
tennis package includes courtside snacks, refreshments and dinner.
Tickets for the awards dinner only can be purchased for $65.
