Humane Society golf fundraiser tees off May 9

SILVERDALE — Kitsap Humane Society’s upcoming golf tourney, “Fore the Animals” at Trophy Lake Golf & Casting in Port Orchard on Friday, May 9 at 11 a.m., will not be just another golf tournament.

What will make the difference? Dogs!

KHS tournament participants are encouraged to bring their pooches to ride along in the golf cart or walk alongside. Of course, there will be special rules and regulations (bring your own poop bags), but it wouldn’t be a KHS event without a pet or two.

“Last year, we surpassed our expectations with our ‘Fore the Animals’ Golf Tournament, with attendance and revenue. With more experience and a loyal group of golfers and dogs, we are looking forward to exceeding our goals again this year,” said KHS Executive Director Eric Stevens. “KHS has a critical need in 2014 to continue building sustaining funds to support programs such as adoption outreach, vet services and spay/neuter programs.”

Registration deadline for foursomes or individual players is May 2. The cost is $125 per player or $460 per foursome. An additional registration fee of $50 is required for each dog, and each foursome is limited to only one dog.

To register for the tournament, visit kitsap-humane.org/fore-animals-golf-tournament. Tournament sponsors are also needed.

For more information on the event or sponsoring the event, contact Rachel Bearbower, marketing and event manager, at 360-692-6977 ext. 1216.
