6th Annual Mulligans Fore Mutts Golf Tournament
If you enjoy golf and would like to help homeless animals, don’t miss the Mulligans Fore Mutts Golf Tournament Saturday, July 28. The four-person scramble begins with a 10 a.m. shotgun start at Picacho Hills Country Club, located at 6861 Via Campestre.
The fundraiser benefits ACTion Programs for Animals in its effort to rescue dogs and cats and to help the community reach its No Kill goal as soon as possible.
The deadline for teams to register is Wednesday, July 25. The entry fee is $500 for a four-member team or $125 for an individual. The tournament will also have a $10,000 putting contest.
Rich Fisher, APA volunteer and Mulligans Fore Mutts coordinator, said the sixth annual tournament should be a memorable event, and there are still many opportunities to get involved.
“In addition to golfing, we have plenty of opportunities for people to volunteer at the event,” Fisher said. “The wonderful thing about this tournament is that 100 percent of the proceeds will go to ACTion Programs for Animals, a nonprofit that is constantly working to find homes for animals and to educate the public about the importance of spaying, neutering and vaccinating pets.”
To sign up as a golfer, volunteer or sponsor, please contact Fisher at 575-373-0159 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow the event on Facebook @mulligansforemutts.
