Muttigans Charity Golf Tournament to Benefit Local Rescue Animals
Dogleg. Kitty litter. Bite. Sit. Waggle. Yip. Gimme. Heel. Terminology isn’t the only thing golfers and local pets will have in common this October.
You’re invited to tee up your 2016-17 golf season at Muttigans, a charity golf tournament to benefit We Care for Animals (WCFA), the Mesquite-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of life for homeless and unwanted companion animals in Mesquite and surrounding communities through spay/neuter, adoptions and responsible pet ownership.
WCFA focuses on saving and re-homing adoptable pets before they enter a shelter. The organization provides medical care, spay-neuter, vaccinations and foster homes until each pet in its care can be placed into a loving home. Since 2009, WCFA has placed more than 750 homeless cats and dogs in new homes and funded more than 3,500 spay/neuters to help prevent more unwanted pets.
The work of WCFA is funded solely through donations. Muttigans is your chance to help while enjoying a fun-filled day of golf, lunch, and prizes galore. All sponsor and player donations are collected by WCFA directly, and 100% of proceeds will fund the work they do.
The Muttigans tournament will take place Friday, October 21 at Falcon Ridge Golf Course, a favorite among locals and visitors alike. This is the first
charity golf tournament held in Mesquite to benefit rescue animals in this community. Many generous businesses are on board already, and sponsorship opportunities are still available if you’re not in on the fun yet.
Expect all the usual suspects — long drives, KPs, a putting contest (“Putts for Mutts”), and winning team prizes. In addition, we hope our “bogey is your friend” format will make for a refreshing pace of play for an event like this. No team can make a score higher than bogey. If your team has no chance to make par, just pick up and head to the next hole, and mark down a bogey on your card.
We have some other games to add to the fun as well. Hole-In-One Pet Products, the new pet supply store opening in November, was one of the first sponsors to jump in, and is hosting – you guessed it – a hole in one contest for a $15,000 cash prize. Ready Golf and Gear is another enthusiastic
sponsor, and in addition to some great prize donations for the raffle, is also hosting a hole in one contest with an EZ-GO golf car on the line. InterMountain Golf Car is in on the HIO fun as well, giving you yet another chance to win a golf car. But it doesn’t stop there. Other surprise fun and games await you at the course.
We want to acknowledge and thank Rising Star Sports Ranch Resort for being an Event Sponsor, and for their generous donation and support of this event. Thanks also to Wolf Creek, Coyote Springs, Falcon Ridge, and Conestoga, for donating rounds of golf for our prize pool.
If you love animals (and who doesn’t?), this is the must play event of the year. Check in starts at 7 am October 21 at Falcon Ridge Golf Club, 1024 Normandy Lane, in Mesquite, for a shotgun start at 8 am. Players pay only $125 for their round of golf, luncheon, and WCFA donation.
