Golf season is in full swing. While spending the day on the golf course you have an opportunity to help a Golden Retriever rescue at the same time. The Wisconsin Adopt a Golden Retriever(WAAGR) golf outing tees off Sept. 24 and the organization is looking for foursomes, corporate and hole sponsors, and silent auction items for the event.
WAAGR’s annual golf outing will be held at a new location in 2011, Scenic View Country Club in Slinger, Wis. The event will be held rain or shine, and starts at 8:30 a.m. The event is a 4-person scramble with a shotgun start. The putting contest begins at 7:45 a.m. prior to the start of the outing, so come early! Enjoy a day of golf, while helping the Golden Retrievers in WAAGR’s care.
“Come and tee off for a great cause!” WAAGR Board member Craig Cwiklowski said. “This is a great event to not only enjoy a day of golf, but also to help our four-legged friends, the Golden Retrievers! This is one of our biggest fundraising events to help us operate our organization.”
The cost is $100 per person, which includes 18 holes with cart, a buffet dinner, and a chance to win prizes. Prizes also will be awarded for longest putt, longest drive, closest to the pin, low score team, high score team and a hole-in one contest. The deadline to sign up for the event is Sept. 17.
Not a golfer? The cost to attend the dinner and silent auction only is $20. All proceeds from the event go to help the Golden Retrievers that are fostered through the group. Contact Craig Cwiklowski at (414) 550-1933 or firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up, donate an item for the silent auction or for more information about the event. The registration form for the golf outing is posted on the WAAGR Web site.
