Dog Days of Summer golf tournament needs teams
Did you know that the Winnie Berry Humane Society of Angelina County is a refuge without death. Over the years, hundreds if not thousands of dogs and cats have been matched with their eternal families through the Lufkin Shelter. Every Friday on KICKS 105’s Merrell in the Morning Show, we feature our Pet of the Week. Through this portal, a number of dogs and cats have also been adopted.
I learned through these visits with some animal technicians at Winnie Berry that a lot of donations are needed for the daily operations of the shelter. Food, kitty litter, cleaning supplies, vet visits, and more add up quickly. There are a lot of people in the region who are mobilizing and making monetary or material donations. It is much appreciated, but it is certainly below the overall need. This is why it is imperative that fundraising events, such as the upcoming Dog Days of Summer golf tournament, are successful.
This year’s event will take place on June 18 at the Crown Colony Country Club in Lufkin. What a great way to raise funds for the refuge … while playing golf. First we were locked away thanks to the pandemic, and now the rain won’t let us go out and play. Fortunately (with fingers crossed), the forecast for this Friday looks better than what we have seen.
The Dog Days of Summer Tourney is a four-man melee with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. There will be cash prize contests including Beat the Pro, as well as hole-in-one prizes with a chance to win a 2021 Toyota RAV4, courtesy of Loving Toyota. Lunch will also be provided.
