The 17th annual Doglegs, Birdies & Eagles Golf Tournament teed off April 18 at the San Gabriel Country Club. More than $235,000 was raised for the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA’s (PHS) programs and services, exceeding the $230,000 goal set by event organizers.
Event co-chairs Georgia Coye, Roslyn DeForest and Dan Lien worked with PHS event coordinators to make for a successful event. More than 144 golfers participated in the annual fundraiser for the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. The day began with a putting contest, a full 18-hole course and the helicopter ball drop opportunity drawing. Four buckets filled with golf balls were airlifted by helicopter and were spilled onto the fairway. One ball landed in the hole giving the winner $3,620. The winnings were donated back to PHS. A live and silent auction and an awards dinner concluded the event.
“We can’t thank the players, donors, staff at the San Gabriel Country Club and volunteers enough,” says PHS President/CEO Steve McNall. “It’s great to see people come together over a friendly game of golf to help animals in need.”
Proceeds from the tournament will help provide nourishing food, safe shelter and veterinary care to the approximate 12,000 animals PHS cares for every year. The shelter’s next signature event the 18th annual Wiggle Waggle Walk is set for Sunday, Sept. 27 at Brookside Park in Pasadena. For more information visit pasadenahumane.org.
