This year on the 23rd of October the Durban Guide-Dog Annual Golf Day held at Umdoni Club managed to raise R9000 odd from the wonderful Hole and Tee Sponsorships, entries money, raffle and cash donations which helps greatly towards training another dog!
The field comprised of 48 golfers, in a Four Ball Better Ball Stableford Competition. Without everyone’s help it just wouldn’t happen!
Whilst the breeding and training of Guide Dogs is their core function, they are also committed to providing Service Dogs for those in a wheelchairs, and Social Dogs to act as a companion, friend and stimulant for mentally disabled persons. The organization is currently training around 50 to 60 dogs a year.
The need is greater than ever for the guide and service dogs, training, and aftercare support provided over the entire life of a dog.
“So I would like to extend my sincere gratitude for your generosity and encouragement in our work. The real and lasting value of your donation cannot be over emphasised! And to end, an early warning – the next Golf Day will probably be held at the end of October 2016 – but will be held on a Sunday as we don’t then have to pay Green Fees!
Thank you once again for your support!” – Di Turner
