Golf tournament benefits good cause

— — Dust off that 9-iron, it’s time to tee up. The Mercer County Spay Association will hold its second annual golf gala on Saturday, May 31, to raise funds for our spay and neutering programs. The Wolf Creek Golf Club in Bastian, Va., will again host our tournament, a four-member team, captain’s choice event slated to tee-off around 9 a.m. We raised enough money last year to spay and neuter more than 100 animals, mostly for families who could not afford to do so, and our goal is to top that figure in 2014.

All our prices are exactly what they were last year — no inflation here! And the good barbecue we sat down to following last year’s play is on the menu again. (If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.)

We are putting our prize package together and have already secured a 2014 Chevy Malibu from Ramey Chevrolet in Princeton for one of our hole-in-one contests. A 50-foot, $5,000 putting contest has also been planned.

We all know spay and neutering programs are the answer to the animal problems we have had. There are a lot of folks in this community who have become involved in spay and neuter programs and I feel the animal situation has gotten much better, the golf tournament has helped.

It’s a reasonable price for the fun you’ll have and the good it will do. You can join by calling 304-320-2604 or emailing to
