Par for Paws Golf Tournament restructured
The fifth annual Par for Paws Golf Tournament, benefiting the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SQSPCA), has been restructured due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event will now be an SCSPCA Golf Weekend that will run Sept. 25 to Sept. 27 at the Otsego Golf Club.
“Given the shelter’s dependence on fund raising despite the continuing concerns regarding COVID-19, we are revamping our one-day tournament into a weekend event stretching over several days,” SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes said in a media release.
“Anyone teeing off at the Otsego Golf Club during our Golf Weekend can take part simply by mentioning they are golfing in support of the SQSPCA. The $40 per-person admission charge will cover greens fees for 18 holes, use of a cart, a thank-you gift, and a hot dog at the end of play,” Haynes continued.
