The 6th Annual Tee Off for Dogs Golf Tournament (an annual golf tournament raising funds for programs for the visually impaired, including Guide Dogs for the Blind), was held Sunday, May 16 at Black Gold Golf Club in Yorba Linda, Calif. It was a fun and barking success! We had 117 golfers, 40 working dogs and puppies, a helicopter for the ball drop, the famous blind man hole, massage tables, lots of food, lots of licks and tons of laughs! We are very proud to announce this years tournament grossed $30,000!
The golfers had the opportunity to pet, play and receive hot puppy breath kisses from Guide Dog puppies while their raisers happily looked on. Many thanks to the six puppy raising groups in Southern California that participated: BAARK, CNI, Los Angeles Southwest Puppy Raisers, Paws for Independence, Puppies to Partners and VIP3.
And did you hear the news? I gave it a go at the blind man hole, and my ball went over 400 yards! Yes, 400 yards, or so we heard. (My Guide Dog, Cardinal, isn't talking, so my secret is safe!)
We posted many pictures on the website; please check them out at teeofffordogs.org
Can't wait for next year!
