San Diego, CA–Golfers and their furry friends will tee off October 18 for The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) annual dog-friendly golf tournament hosted by local philanthropists Ira and Cini Robb.
The socially distanced tournament will be held at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe, organizers said. The event will allow golfers to bring their dogs on the course to enjoy a day of fun.
MLB legend Fred Lynn will be onsite for the Hole in One contest, and special goody bags for both players and their canine companions.
All proceeds from the tournament will help save pets in need of emergency veterinary care. To date, FACE has saved the lives of over 3,100 local pets and has assisted hundreds of pets and families with vital resources and education.
Following the tournament, players are invited to a special awards ceremony and sunset Yappy Hour including delicious appetizers and desserts. Guests will have a chance to bid on items at the silent and live auctions featuring luxury getaways and VIP experiences. The special Dream Ticket raffle includes rounds of golf at some of Southern California’s best clubs.
“My husband Ira and I are honored to be hosting FACE Foundation’s Dog-Friendly Golf Tournament for the 10th year in a row,” said Cini Robb, board president of FACE. “As a cause near and dear to our hearts, this special event will raise funds for pets facing economic euthanasia and provide resources and food as support for families who need these services through our Community Outreach Program.”
FACE’s 2020 Golf Tournament raised over $138,000 for pets in need. Major event sponsors for this year’s tournament include Carlsbad Golf Center, Spearhead LLC, and the Robb family.
