March 11, 2016 – 3rd Annual Freedom Dogs Golf Tournament – Public Event

March 11, 2016

The 3rd Annual Freedom Dogs Golf Tournament was held on March 11, 2016 at Arrowood Golf Course in Oceanside.  It was a great golfing experience – up until the last two holes.  The skies opened and released a huge amount of rain in a short period of time.  Only two foursomes continue to complete their 18 holes!  We were all very proud of them. The helicopter ball drop was cancelled because of the weather, but the dogs came through and retrieved the winning ball.  That was followed by the silent auction and dinner. After dinner, Amy Burkman did a presentation of speed painting and surprised everyone with the results.  The first painting was of a golfer, but she painted the whole thing upside down and at the last moment turned the picture over and we could see the golfer! The paintings were auctioned off immediately and two very happy golfers took them home.
