Golf for the Grayter good of dogs
DOVER- As demand for its services continues to grow, New York-based nonprofit The Grayter Good Weimaraner Rescue is gearing up for another major fundraising event.
The second annual Doglegs Golf Outing is being held at Mount Snow Golf Club on Saturday, September 29. All proceeds will go to support The Grayter Good’s mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home purebred Weimaraners anywhere in the eastern United States.
Since its inception in 2015, The Grayter Good has rescued more than 175 Weimaraners ranging in age from four weeks to 14 years, and found them permanent homes with families from Florida to Maine. This has been accomplished with a core team of just four people—Peter and Susan MacDonald in New York, and southeast rescue coordinator Kate Wagner and her husband Scott in Florida—coordinating and transporting, while still working full-time jobs.
According to MacDonald, the average medical expenses per rescued Weimaraner are $1,200, much of which has come out of pocket. The Doglegs Golf Outing is a means to defer some of those costs, raise awareness of the organization, grow the donor network, and, in turn, increase The Grayter Good’s capabilities.
Player registration is $125 per person. It includes 18 holes of golf, dinner, a goody bag, and more. A silent auction will be held following the scramble‐format shotgun tournament, which tees off at 1 pm.
