Grateful for a Paws-itively Successful Dog Days Tournament!

Honoring the life of Ivy Loving and In memory of tournament founder, Bob Diamond

Despite encountering a rain delay, our Dog Days of Spring Golf Tournament fundraiser for our animal shelter proved to be a remarkable success, thanks to the steadfast support of our community. This annual event serves as our primary fundraiser, and this year was no exception. We extend our sincere appreciation to each individual who purchased a raffle ticket, made a donation, or sponsored at any level.

We also express our gratitude to our dedicated board members, diligent staff, and committed volunteers, whose collective efforts were instrumental in the event's success. We deeply appreciate the generosity and compassion demonstrated by the teams and sponsors who stood by our shelter animals, despite the weather challenges.

A special acknowledgment goes to Crown Colony Country Club and the Golf Pro Shop for their invaluable support and assistance throughout the event. Together, we continue to make a meaningful impact on the lives of our furry companions.
