Vero Beach Dog Event: In the Ruff Golf Tournament

I just received this email and wanted to pass it along! Check it out!

Dog Event Flyer 2013

The 5th Annual In The Ruff Golf Tournament to benefit H.A.L.O. Rescue and Stray No More, Inc. date has been set for October 4~5, 2013.

In_The_RuffThe event kicks off with a cocktail party on Friday evening, from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM,  poolside party at the Indian River Club.  There will be a DJ, silent auction and…wait for it …. another K-9 demonstration by the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office…(ladies, calm down now!!!) ! And because we are definitely non-discriminatory, we have a little something else planned for the evening.  Captain Bob has stepped up to the plate and is donating a guided airboat tour to the winner of the evening’s chipping contest (into the pool) and I’m pretty confident you’ve never seen an aqua golf water ball retriever like this!

Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served throughout the evening. Cash bar. Cost per person will be $50. This is so much fun for non-golfers and golfers alike to support two great causes and enjoy a beautiful venue, good food and friends. 

The golf tournament day and events at the beautiful Indian River Club will remain basically the same.  To summarize:   Continental breakfast at 8:00 AM, four man scramble begins at 9:00 AM, followed by an all you can eat barbeque and awards.  Player entry fee is $100 per player. 

There will be a pet adoption ON-SITE again at the golf tournament on Saturday, featuring dogs and cats needing a new home.

We’re looking for corporate sponsors of all levels, door prizes, silent auction items and players.

In addition, individuals and businesses will be offered the opportunity to purchase “tee signs” for $50.  This is a sign that could promote a business or memorialize a sentiment to loved ones, or even just a thank you to someone or something important.  Tee signs can include photos and artwork of almost any style – if you would like to see some examples, please e-mail me (the files are very large).  These signs will be placed along the course where players tee off and will be seen by everyone-it is a great source of advertising!  The tee sign sponsor is welcome to keep the sign for themselves when the tournament is over. 

I know this is a lot of information, so please call me at 772-360-9294 or e-mail me at if you have any questions.  If you own a business, please consider giving something to the tournament – donations and the entry fee are tax deductible as both organizations are Florida 501 (c) (3) not for profits. 

No item is too small for a door prize and the bigger the better for a silent auction item!

All of the profits will go to directly assist animals in Indian River County, either via HALO Rescue or the spay / neuter program established by Stray No More, Inc.  Proceeds are split 50% / 50% between the two non-profits and all funds raised stay in Indian River County and are used locally.

Please share it to everyone you can, golfer or not…..everyone can help with this incredible event raising funds to help animals and residents in Indian River County! 

Many thanks,
