Red Ledges to Host Fundraiser for Paws For Life

For the second consecutive year, Red Ledges in Heber City will host a golf event for Paws for Life, a volunteer-run nonprofit with a mission to end animal homelessness and euthanasia in Utah.

The course, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Park, is normally closed to the public, but there are still open slots for anyone to play. Some dogs from the shelter will be in attendance, and there will be a catered lunch and prizes sponsored by local businesses.

This will be the second year for Paws for Life to hold the golf fundraiser after the group had to change plans for its normal casino party gala for pandemic protocol in 2020.

This year, it's sticking to the golf event after receiving positive feedback last year and raising $35,000, when 92 players competed.

Volunteer and co-chair Betsy Townsend hopes this year, with fewer obstacles due to COVID-19, the fundraiser will be able to raise even more for animals in Utah. 

“A lot of these kill shelters, they put a date, almost like an expiration date, on these animals, and so we try to go in and save them, before they’re put down, and regardless of age and health, we will foster them out, and we’ll also get them the medical attention they need," Townsend said.

"If they need to be spayed or neutered, if they have behavioral issues, sometimes they need to be socialized," she added. "All of that involves hundreds of people, really.”
