SWOSU Students Hosting Golf Tourney to Raise Funds for Animal Shelter


Two classes at Southwestern Oklahoma State University and the Friends For Life Animal Society are working together to host a golf tournament to raise funds to build a new animal shelter in western Oklahoma.

Putts for Paws is a four-person golf scramble planned for Saturday, April 17, beginning at 8 a.m. at Sugar Creek Canyon Golf Club in Hinton. Everyone is invited to play.

The two SWOSU Everett Dobson School of Business & Technology classes-Event Management and Sales Skills & Management-allow students to get hands-on experience with this type of activity. The students are working hard to put on a successful event, according to SWOSU Assistant Professor Dr. Tami Moser.

Cost is $300 per team and there will be two prize flights. Cost includes greens fees, golf cart, breakfast and lunch. For additional information, contact Moser at 580.774.3069.

Friends for Life have a 10-acre site south of Clinton and are raising money to construct a sanctuary on the site. The purpose of the organization is to provide a caring, safe and loving environment for abused and abandoned animals.
