Mid Hudson Animal Aid holds fourth annual Pars Fore Purrs event
Mid Hudson Animal Aid (MHAA) will hold its fourth annual Pars Fore Purrs Charity Golf Tournament Monday, July 29, at Dutchess Golf Club, 2628 South Road, Poughkeepsie.
Registration and a barbecue will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Shotgun start for the four-person scramble will begin at 1 p.m. Light snacks, soft drinks, water and beer will be provided on the course. Golfers will congregate at the cocktail hour beginning at 6 p.m. The buffet dinner will commence at 6:45 p.m., including beer, wine and soda; there will be a silent auction, golf prize awards, raffle and a 50/50 drawing. Teams will be able to purchase mulligans and participate in various contests, including a hole-in-one contest and putting contest.
The fee is $160/player and there is a $50 dinner-only option for non-golfers who want to join for the evening festivities. Proceeds from this event will help care for the cats at MHAA, a not-for-profit, free-range cat sanctuary in Beacon.
“We’ve experienced an increase in veterinary needs for injured or sick cats that come to our shelter,” said Mary Ann Bopp, MHAA volunteer and chair of the golf tournament. “This is an important charity event to help defray these costs.”
Sponsorship opportunities are available to support this event. The shelter is also looking for silent auction items. To register, go to midhudsonanimalaid.org under “Events” or contact the shelter at 845-831-4321. For sponsorship information or donation of an auction item, email email@example.com.
