ROCKPORT – PAWS Animal Adoption Center is going on the green this month for its second annual Fore PAWS Golf Tournament & Golf Ball Drop, generously presented by Rockport Automotive.
The event is one of the shelter’s largest annual fundraiser, where a raffle-style golf ball is dropped with a grand prize of $ 1,000.
While the golf tournament itself is full, anyone can try their luck for the animals by purchasing golf ball drop tickets. A total of 1,000 numbered golf balls will be dropped from a 15-foot elevator during the PAWS tournament on August 13 at the Goose River Golf Club in Rockport.
Whichever numbered ball lands closest to the designated flag will be the winner of the $ 1,000 grand prize. The second prize is $ 500. Only 1,000 tickets will be sold, priced at $ 10 each. Attendees can purchase as many $ 10 tickets as they want. Each ticket purchased represents a numbered golf ball. All income goes to the animals of PAWS.
Golf ball drop entrants do not need to be present to win. However, everyone from the public is welcome to take part in the 5:30 p.m. drop
