ALTON — The Alton Police Department will host the K9 Classic Golf Tournament Saturday, Sept. 27, at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course.
The tournament will feature a $1,000 Shoot Out, a 2014 Buick Encore Hole-In-One Prize from Quality GM Cars, and prizes for the longest drive.
Registration will be $100 per player or $400 per team. Mulligans and skins will be available for purchase ahead of time or at the event for $5 per player. Early registration for $80 per player or $320 per team, a savings of up to $80, has been extended to encourage team participation until Wednesday, Sept. 24. Sponsorship opportunities range from $100 for a “Share-A-Hole Sponsorship” to $1,500 for an “Eagle Sponsorship.”
Proceeds from the tournament will go directly to the Alton Police K9 Fund.
“With the community’s help we were able to purchase a second K-9, Nikko, and a vehicle for him last year. Any money raised this year will be put directly into the Alton Police K9 Fund and continue to support all the dogs in the program with whatever needs may arise,” Alton Police Department Public Information Officer Pfc. Emily Hejna said.
Businesses and individuals who want to participate in the K9 Classic as a player or sponsor, or would like to make a donation to the Alton Police Department K9 Fund, can contact the Alton Police Department at (618) 463-3502 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
