Friends For Life Golf Tournament



Friends for Life’s, a Brevard based, non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home senior and special needs companion animals, is sponsoring a Golf Tournament at 8 am, October 12 at the Kenmure Country Club in Flat Rock, NC.

Proceeds from the tournament will be used to support a new hospice facility for critically ill animals so that they can live the last days of their lives in peace, receive excellent care and be treated with love and compassion. The hospice is located at Friends for Life’s Forever Farms which is a sanctuary for these special needs animals. The Farm is located in the Brevard area but serves Western North Carolina.  Instead of being caged the animals are free to roam the multi-acre farm while under the watchful eye of the organization’s staff.

Friends Forever addresses an important need in caring for senior and special needs animals who have been abandoned when their owner’s die, go into assisted living, or become unable to care for their pet due to health issues. Unlike a lot of rescue groups – the adoptability of an animal is of little concern to Forever Farms. In fact, Forever Farms makes a commitment to the animal that no one else will and that is to find them an excellent home or care for the pet for life if the animal is not adopted.

If you would like to help these animals by participating in the tournament, sponsoring a hole, or providing goods or services that can be auctioned at the tournament please contact Jim Walker at 904.412.1592.  To sponsor a hole and have your name, pet’s name or business prominently displayed is $100, sponsor a green $200, sponsor the score board $500.  On if you would like play in the tournament the cost is $475 for a foursome with lunch and dinner provided. Donations are tax deductible.
