Paws Place Dog Rescue hosted its 10th Annual Golf Tournament on September 25th at Compass Pointe Golf Club, Leland, NC.

With nCino as the sponsor, this yearly event raises crucial funds for the non-profit dog rescue’s operations. Over 112 golfers participated this year, contributing over $98,000 through entry fees, sponsorships, raffle ticket sales, silent auction sales, and special donations. This marks the most successful fundraising event in Paws Place’s history.

The funds raised during the Golf Tournament will support the medical needs, care, food, and shelter for both current and future dogs. This all-volunteer, nonprofit dog rescue is also planning essential repair projects, maintenance, and equipment replacement to continue its operations.
