Paws for some golf

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - AN­GELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

CALL­ING all golf-hounds, pros and rank ama­teurs, the or­gan­is­ers of annual Char­ity Golf Day for Paws and Claws are howl­ing for your sup­port.

The Sea Tem­ple Golf Club and Stan­ton Golf Man­age­ment are host­ing the Open Am­brose event with help from Pa­cific Toy­ota and Lexus of Cairns on July 15.

Paws and Claws trea­surer Deb­o­rah Maguire said all pro­ceeds will go to­wards build­ing their new animal care cen­tre in Craiglie, which Paws and Claws are hope­ful will start to be built in the next few months.

“It’s the largest fundraiser for the year and sup­ports the new animal care cen­tre and last year it was very suc­cess­ful and ev­ery­body re­ally en­joyed it and we’re hop­ing for a full house this year,” she said.

“The Port Dou­glas com­mu­nity is a very gen­er­ous com­mu­nity - even though they’re strug­gling them­selves we get a lot of sup­port for the animal refuge.

“We’re look­ing for teams of four and you can come on your own and we’ll put you in teams, we’re look­ing for peo­ple to come and en­joy the day and sup­port a good cause.”

En­try fee for the day is $125 per per­son and in­cludes 18 holes, shared elec­tric cart, a ba­con and egg muf­fin at reg­is­tra­tion and beer, wine and soft drink on the course with lunch.

The not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion would ap­pre­ci­ate any gifts and do­na­tions to go to­wards a raf­fle bas­ket, which will be held on the day.
