Paying the Winter heating bills this season has been been a great challenge for many of us including local animal shelters like Project Paw.  What makes it even more tough for shelter is they don't receive funding from the county, city or state, like some other local shelters do. They rely strictly on individual donations.  And the number of cats housed at Project Paw is at an all-time high.

That's something the Binghamton Moose Riders club took in to consideration when they were making plans to find a local charity that would benefit most from a charity golf tournament.  According to Michael Pratt, Event Organizer for the Binghamton Moose Riders Club 1013, all the money raised will go help the kittens at cats at Project Paw animal shelter, located at 127 Bevier Street, Binghamton.

The Binghamton Moose Riders have a rich history in helping those in need in our community so it's only natural they are willing to help make a difference in those furry beings that are looking for forever homes.

Their goal is to make the 1st Annual 'Puttin' fore Paws' charity golf tournament  on September 6th at the Afton Golf Club, a great success.  At this early stage, the group is seeking local businesses to sponsor holes in the tournament. Each hole sponsorship is $100. $500 or $1000. A $500 sponsorship gives you the right to sponsor the $10,000 hole in one hole. The $1000 donation includes a team of 4 golfers in the tournament.

If you are interested to find out how you can help or to enter the tournament, call Mike at (607) 206-8323.

And to get a few rounds in there before the big tourney, check out the HAWK Clubhouse Club with an opportunity to play 21 of the areas best golf courses. Plus, you will receive 6 buckets of balls at Greater Golf Training Center and Pro Shop, 2 large buckets of balls at Legends Golf Center and 2 passes to the 2014 Dick's Sporting Goods Open, where the Zac Brown Band will perform in concert.
