Hit the green for a good cause on June 25! The Humane Educational Society is hosting the sixth annual Drives for Lives Golf tournament at the Lookout Mountain Club. Proceeds from the Drives for Lives Golf Tournament will help provide shelter, food and medical treatment for homeless, neglected and abused animals in our community.
Golfers can register a team of two or four for the Drives for Lives Golf Tournament at the Humane Educational Society’s website, heschatt.org. Teams of two will be paired with another two-person team. Upon arrival, golfers will be greeted by adoptable dogs from the Humane Educational Society, and these dogs will all benefit from the tournament. At registration, players will receive Humane Educational Society golf balls and complimentary lunch, and they will have the opportunity to purchase skirts and mulligans, as well. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Lookout Mountain Club.
During lunch, golfers can enjoy a whiskey tasting from Chattanooga Whiskey and purchase a cigar from The Cigar Man. You can bet the two will pair well! A shotgun start will begin at 1 p.m. Complimentary drinks will be served on the course, including beer from Heaven and Ale Brewing Company. The Chef and His Wife will provide afternoon snacks of their famous pimento cheese in all four flavors, original, smoked Gouda, chipotle adobo hot and jalapeno. Golfers will also have the chance to compete at a Closest to the Pin challenge where the winner will receive a night stay at The Moxy Chattanooga.
The top three teams of four will win prizes that include restaurant gift cards, a bottle of Chattanooga Whiskey, cigars from The Cigar Man and more. The Humane Educational Society will host a raffle while the scores are being tallied, where players will have additional chances to win prizes.
“Our Drives for Lives Golf Tournament offers our supporters a fun way to make a difference for shelter pets. Funds raised at events like these help provide more than just food and shelter for our animals,” said executive director Bob Citrullo. The tournament helps to fund the Humane Educational Society’s Special Needs Fund, which is what sets HES apart from other shelters.
“When animals that are injured, sick, or in need of rehabilitation come through our doors, the Special Needs Fund provides both emergency care and long-term rehabilitation for these abandoned, abused, and neglected animals,” continued Citrullo.
The Drives for Lives Golf Tournament offers fun, food, drinks and the opportunity to make a difference in our community. Team registration and sponsorship opportunities can be found at the shelter’s website. Don’t miss this day of fun atop beautiful Lookout Mountain! You may end up taking home a prize and a new family member!
