SCUGOG: The fourth annual In the Ruff Golf Tournament will be returning to Sunnybrae Golf Club in Port Perry on Thursday, June 23.
The annual tournament is held in support of the New Animal Shelter for Uxbridge-Scugog. The registration cost is $125 per golfer, or $500 for a foursome. Tee time is 1 p.m.
According to the Vice President of the New Animal Shelter Elizabeth Williams, this year’s tournament has a fundraising goal of $20,000. She also added that they are grateful to see the amount of support from the community for the tournament each year.
“Every year, at least half of our golfers are return golfers so we are always pleased with that,” Ms. Williams said. “We are glad to see that people chose to support our cause over others.”
As of press time, the New Animal Shelter for Uxbridge-Scugog had raised over $950,000 of their $1 million goal.
“It’s exhilarating, it can’t come fast enough,” Ms. Williams said of being so close to the goal. “What some people may not know is that behind the scenes we are working with the Townships and taking the necessary steps to move forward.”
She also added that the group will continue to fundraise a little while longer after they raise the $1 million to make sure that they are not caught short.
