GOLF BENEFIT RAISES $237,000 FOR ANIMALS

PASADENA, Calif. -- (April 28, 2014) The 15th annual Doglegs, Birdies & Eagles Golf Tournament teed off last Monday, April 21 at the San Gabriel Country Club. More than $237,000 was raised for the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA (PHS), exceeding the $230,000 goal set by event organizers.

Event co-chairs Georgia Coye, Roslyn DeForest and Dan Lien worked closely with PHS event coordinators to make it the most successful year yet. More than 144 golfers participated in the annual fundraiser for the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. The day began with a putting contest followed by a full 18-hole course and ended on a high note with the helicopter ball drop opportunity drawing.  Six buckets filled with 1,400 golf balls were airlifted by helicopter and were spilled onto the fairway. Four winning balls landed in the hole granting winners a portion of $10,000. 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 16th annual Wiggle Waggle Walk – is set for Sunday, September 28 at Brookside Park in Pasadena. Fetch more information at www.pasadenahumane.org
