The Cigar Club of the Palm Beaches’ 2018 Golf Classic on May 5 resulted in a $3,315.75 donation to the Awesome Greyhound Adoptions Hounds & Heroes program. This brought the three-year total of net donations by the club to Hounds & Heroes to $15,630.30.
“We’ve been extremely happy to support this incredible program that trains and then provides, absolutely free to veterans, greyhound service dogs to assist them in life’s challenges,” said Bob Still, the tournament director and club president.
Barbara Masi, AGA’s executive director, was thankful for the donation.
“AGA’s Hounds & Heroes program has been fortunate to have the cigar club work with us for these three years in raising funds for our service dog program. We were fortunate to form this relationship during these years,” she said.
