Golf tournament organized to raise funds for guide dogs

July 19, 2013 by  

The 2nd annual Dollars for Dogs golf tournament will take place in Spring City this August. Proceeds from it will go to The Seeing Eye.

The fees for the tournament will include 18 holes, a cart, a silent auction, raffle tickets, lunch, and a barbecue dinner. There will be several contests including a hole in one and a beat the pro challenge, while skill and team prizes will also be awarded.

Each foursome will be assigned a Seeing Eye puppy in training, who will be the team captain. In addition to learning about the Seeing Eye organization, the tournament will be an excellent opportunity for local business leaders to network with one another.

The Seeing Eye trains dogs to become guide dogs for the blind. Players will also be able to witness a training demonstration and learn more about The Seeing Eye and its programs.

Local businesses from the area, including those in nearby Royersford, will likely be donating items to be auctioned off during the tournament. Those businesses might work with local print companies to inform their current customers about the tournament and to encourage some of them to attend themselves.

The Dollars for Dogs golf tournament will take place at the Spring Hollow Golf Club on August 17, beginning at 11:00 am. Fees are $100 per person or $50 for the barbecue dinner only. For more information about the tournament, or about The Seeing Eye, contact Wendy Sherid at 610-948-1148.
