Pars for Paws golf tournament slated for July 25 in Canton


CANTON - The fourth annual Pars for Paws Golf Tournament to benefit the Potsdam Humane Society (PHS) is scheduled for July 25 at the Partridge Run Golf & Country Club in Canton.

The tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 1 p.m., and includes a day of golf, food, a raffle and an opportunity to win prizes, including Hole-In-One, Longest Drive, Closest to Pin and more.

Monies raised from the tournament support PHS, a nonprofit organization serving 11 towns within St. Lawrence County. Last year’s tournament raised more than $7,500.

“The Potsdam Humane Society provides services to some 1,200 animals each year,” said Suzanne Smith, Potsdam Humane Society board member and tournament chair. “Money from the tournament directly supports the animals in our care. Additionally, PHS offers educational programs for the community and local schools, a Pets for Veterans program, a successful low-cost spay and neuter program and more. All of this benefits our community.”

The tournament is currently seeking sponsors and offers four levels of support:

Hole-in-One ($1,000) includes a featured listing in the program, two hole sponsorships, photo submission to local media, as well as year-round recognition at PHS shelter building and at Best Friends Thrift store in downtown Potsdam.
