Winning team members (not in order) Gary Moore, Lance Kammerer, Katie Kammerer, and Jana Kolot. 

We Care for Animals (WCFA) held their first Muttigans Charity golf tournament on Friday Oct. 21 at Falcon Ridge Golf Course.  According to the WCFA volunteers it was a huge success and raised much needed funds for spay/neuter and the regular care of many wonderfully adoptable pets both dogs and cats.

Their Event Sponsor was Rising Star Sports Ranch Resort.  They had numerous other sponsors – hole sponsors, “VIP (Very Important Pet)” level sponsors, “Top Dog” sponsors, and “Best in Show” sponsors, plus tons of prize sponsors.

WCFA wants to Thank Kristen Williams, the tournament organizer, who worked tirelessly to pull it all together. Thank you to Michelle & Michael Brooks of Ready Golf & Gear for always being there for the animals.  They also want to thank the many sponsors, volunteers and participants who made it a success.

The first place team was a four man/woman team of Gary Moore, Lance Kammerer, Katie Kammerer, and Jana Kolot.  Photo printed in Thursday, Oct. 27 was of the hole-in-one winner, Curtis and his teammates not the winning team as captioned.

WCFA had three hole- in-one contests on par three holes.  On those holes the participants had the chance to win a Ford Mustang from Ken Graff Ford Lincoln, an EZ Go Golf Car from Ready Golf, and a $15,000 cash prize sponsored by Deb Parsley, Keller Williams.

Falcon Ridge Golf Club never had a hole-in-one during a tournament until Rocky Curtis, who was unavailable for comment, knocked one in on hole 14 to win the golf car!

To top it all off, WCFA had an adoptable dog at the luncheon following the event, and one of the players is taking her home for a sleepover, and if she’s a good fit with the family, she will be adopted!

WCFA says this is just the first of many to come and remember: Don’t breed or buy, adopt and save a life.
