CGA Golf Tournament 2013

Hits a hole in one for greyhounds!
Colorado Greyhound Adoption's 13th annual golf tournament was held on Saturday, July 6th, 2013. We teed off in the beautiful morning with 51 golfers there was not a cloud in the sky and it was nice and cool. We had 13 teams playing in the 13th year of the tournament.

The golf tournament is an event that CGA puts on every year that gets a lot of outside exposure. The tournament is filled up with mostly teams that are not members of CGA; therefore, we are able to reach out to another crowd of people and spread the word about these wonderful hounds.

We had some fosters that showed up and it is always great to see how excited people get when they meet a greyhound for the first time. The greyhounds that
showed up were "greyt" ambassadors.

jasonThanks again for making this fundraiser a huge success and we raised $4,485 in profit (or Net Income) for these wonderful hounds and had a good time doing it. This number does not include the money raised with the CGA store. That is in addition to this number. In the 13 years that we have held the golf tournament, a total of $41,726 has been raised for CGA.

I would like to thank everyone that helped set up, or volunteer, or sponsor, or play, or came out for the lunch to support us. YOU are the ones that make these events happen. THANKS!!!!

I especially want to thank the following:
  • Rollie Fortman for promoting the event and getting some extra foursomes together, as well as, getting all of the "goodie bags" together and helping out with the registration and picking up the prizes from Barb,
  • Roxanne for helping with registration and with the great prizes from Sports Authority and hats from Adidas too,
  • Kay for helping out with registration,
  • Pete for keeping up with the registrations on the online store,
  • Vaughn for spreading the flyers all over town,
  • Barb for getting the wonderful prizes donated,
  • Rene for helping me organize everything and helping with the award ceremony,
  • Lori for getting the beer for the win your height in beer contest,
  • The Homestead at Fox Hollow for allowing us to bring the hounds to the course. We are welcome to bring them to the patio at the Homestead Grill any time. They love the hounds. Please support them during the rest of the year, whether it's to play a round or enjoy lunch or dinner at the Homestead Grill.
Last, but not least, I’d like to thank everyone who brought their hounds, came out to enjoy the lunch, played in the tournament, and contributed to a hole sponsor.
I hope I have not forgotten anyone, if so, I apologize in advance. This event could not have happened without a bunch of teamwork and effort on the part of the many people listed here.
