CLEARWATER – The 29th annual Love Fore Charity Golf and Tennis Tournament will take place on Saturday, March 2, at the Countryside Country Club, 3001 Countryside Blvd.
The event will benefit the Humane Society of Pinellas. The cost to play a round of golf is $100 and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, hole-in-one competition, skills games and raffles. The cost to compete in the tennis tournament is $85. Every participant will receive a gift. Teams or individuals can make reservations online at HumaneSocietyofPinellas.org or by contacting Twila Cole at 797-7722, ext. 222.
Every three years, the Board of Governors of Countryside Country Club selects recipients for the charity tournament for the upcoming three years.
“I have worked as a volunteer with the Humane Society for over 10 years, and I personally love the good works of the Humane Society of Pinellas,” said Helen Henwood, 2013 Love Fore tournament chair, in a press release. “I knew that I wanted to be a part of this endeavor on their behalf, but even I was moved by how quickly the Board accepted my nomination for HSP for the 2013 tournament.”
Proceeds for this popular tournament will help support HSP’s programs to keep low income members of the community and their pets together including spay / neuters, exams and vaccines, as well as the pet food pantry.
“This tournament has supported many worthwhile organizations in the past and we are honored to be this year’s benefactor,” said Sarah Brown, executive director of Humane Society of Pinellas. “It is a major fundraiser for us and we couldn’t thank the volunteers and staff of the club enough.”
