Annual Golf Tournament

Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual golf tournament, Putts for Paws, which raised $54,000.00 on May 09, 2005!

Special thanks to Putts for Paws' major sponsor, Brasfield & Gorrie. This tournament was a tremendous financial commitment for Brasfield & Gorrie, who paid the expenses involved in promoting, planning, and organizing this event as well as providing goodie bag items such as golf balls and tournament golf shirts for all participants and volunteers. We cannot thank Brasfield & Gorrie enough for their tremendous support and generosity, and we feel incredibly lucky to work with a company that is so dedicated to helping children in our community! We also want to extend a special thanks to Eric Young, Julie Wilson, and Ashley Mucha for their hard work in putting this tournament together, coordinating this event, and their dedication to helping others!
