What is Rounds Fore Rescues?
The Lochmoor Club opened its doors (and greens) to sponsors, volunteers and about 125 participants for a day of fun and shameless fundraising.
An outdoor events biggest foe, Michigan weather, was on our side as over 90 golfers lined up for 18 holes of fun in the sun. The cool breeze helped everyone survive the humidity and the cloud cover was a godsend for those teeing off.
DDR volunteers staffed the registration tents and paraded a few of the adoptable dogs around for plenty of affection. We were able to get up close with Dante (the dog, not the person) and see first hand the necessity of the work that DDR does on a daily basis. Found next to an expired corpse, Dante was chained in a garage with an infected neck and cuts and scabs allover his body. Dante’s physical wounds didn’t put a damper on his spirit and he is the most loving dog you’ve ever met! He also really knows how to ham it up for the camera and quickly discovered that Lisa had a pocket full of treats.
There was also a special appearance by a liter of pups that were too cute for words and gave all the dog lovers a healthy dose of puppy breath and kisses.
How much did Rounds Fore Rescues Raise?
The good time was reflected in the good cause and the event raised approximately $28,000 for DDR and the Bow Wow Buddies foundation! Events like this wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of sponsors and vendors. Thank you to everyone who participated, no matter your role. Garden Fresh Gourmet, National Coney Island, The Peppler Agency, K-9 Pet Supplies and anyone else we may not have mentioned. Thank you for letting Camp Bow Wow be a part of this amazing event and also benefit the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, we’ll see you all next year!
