Golfers and local businesses came together to support Island Paws Rescue’s Fourth Annual Charity Golf Tournament, raising more than $24,000 for abandoned dogs and cats. Participants spent the afternoon driving and putting on the links at Pompano Beach Municipal Golf Course for this great cause.
“We are thrilled with the success of this annual tournament, which gains more support each year, thanks in part to the animal advocates and community partners who come together to raise awareness for our four-legged friends in need from the island of Bimini and throughout South Florida,” said Lindsay Raphael, co-founder of Island Paws Rescue. “The proceeds raised will allow Island Paws Rescue to continue our mission of saving the lives of dogs, puppies, cats and kittens though sterilization, adoption and education.”
Participants of the golf tournament enjoyed an afternoon on the links with various athletic pursuits held in conjunction with the tournament, including longest drive, horseshoes and closest-to-the-pin contests. Golfers also had the opportunity to drive home in a 2016 Sorrento, courtesy of Rick Case Kia, during the hole-in-one contest.
For the third year in a row, Jason Dynan, Chris Genske, Ryan Cussen and Matt Clary were awarded first place, which was provided by Papa’s Raw Bar and included a $100 gift certificate to the restaurant, a re-usable tote bag, t-shit and hat, as well as a growler and free fill from 26º Brewing Company.
“As one of the original golfers of this event, I am amazed to see how it has grown in size and scope during the past four years,” said Kevin Fyke, proud supporter of Island Paws Rescue. “Through this tournament, I have become an Island Paws rescuer and now an advocate for the organization and its mission to help animals in need.”
