"Putting for Paws" Charity Golf Tournament "Tales"

On Columbus Day, In-Sync Exotics’ held its 1st annual “Putting for Paws” Charity Golf Tournament.  As you may recall, the last 10 golfing tournaments were sponsored by ISC Corporation and Terry Hill—to which we are truly gratefully for their past support.  This year’s tournament was held at the Woodbridge Golf Club—and everyone who participated said they had a terrific time!

Thirty-three golfers took on the 18-hole championship course rated “Four Stars” by Golf Digest due to its challenging, yet scenic grounds.  The golfers were somewhat concerned that they might be not being able to play due the previous week’s rainy weather, but good fortune was with the golfers and everyone enjoyed a beautiful sunny day at the golf course.

After everyone checked in, the golfers sat down to a quick box lunch, as the nine golf teams were eager to practice and then tee-off.

The tournament format was converted from shotgun to tee times and each team began teeing off individually at 1:00pm.

There were three golfing contests during the tournament:  Hole in One, Closest to the Pin, and Longest Drive.  We did not have a winner for the Hole in One; however, Adam Bowman won both the Longest Drive and the Closest to the Pin contests!  Congratulations to Adam for winning a trophy for each contest, a head cover (golfers will know what this means), and an automatic kick-back practice putting green.

By the time the tournament ended at around 7:00pm everyone was tired, but hungry.  We had a wonderful meal waiting for the golfers and of course, folks wanted to watch the Rangers game in club house.

Trophies were awarded to 1st, 2nd, Middle of the Pack, and Last Place.  Everyone found the Last Place trophy humorous because the prize given out was unexpected, functional, and appropriate for “bringing up the rear”—an engraved pooper scooper purchased at a local pet store.  The engraving said “You are #1 to Us In-Sync Exotics”

Not only did participants have a great time golfing, but they helped raise money for the animals.  A big lion roar of thanks to all the golfers.

We were able to raise a little over $7,035 for the animals thanks to the golfers, our kind sponsors and donors!
