Although the COVID-19 pandemic has put many events on hold, the “Monaghan and Furry Friends Scramble” will run this month.
However, there will be some notable changes to the golf tournament, such as limited players on the green, scheduled tee times and no banquets or awards ceremony. The 11th annual tournament, sponsored by Pet Valu and 106.3 Moose FM, will benefit the North Bay and District Humane Society. It will take place on July 21 at Osprey Links in Callander.
“It was important for us to maintain the legacy of the Monaghan tournament in a safe, controlled way,” says Liam Cullin, the Humane Society’s Executive Director. “So we’ve made modifications to ensure that we can accommodate players while still raising funds for a very worthy cause.”
Officials say Casey’s Grill Bar will provide a take-home lunch for participants, and in place of the usual silent auction, golfers will be able to bid on items online.
Humane Society officials say registration is $125, with all fees staying local to help the humane society care for animals. The goal is to raise $15,000. You can register online.
