The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) will host its fourth annual golf tournament on Monday, Nov. 2, to benefit local pets in need of emergency care and assistance. This dog-friendly event will be held at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club and will allow golfers to bring their canine friends to the course.
Players will also be joined by special VIP guests and MLB legend Fred Lynn and PGA Major Tour winner Corey Pavin, who have supported the foundation since its inception in 2006. This year's tournament will honor San Diego's service men, women and dogs.
FACE was established to combat an increasingly common occurrence called "economic euthanasia" – when pet owners are forced to euthanize sick or injured pets because they cannot afford the necessary medical care for expensive but treatable conditions. FACE is an organization that strives to save lives, reduce economic euthanasia, and increase the wellness of San Diego's pets every day. To date, FACE says it has saved the lives of nearly 1,300 pets in the San Diego community.
All proceeds from the golf tournament will help sick or injured pets and their families during a time of need.
