America’s VetDogs held their 8th Annual VetDogs Golf Classic on Monday, August 26, at the Huntington Country Club in Huntington, NY. This event raises additional funds to cover the costs to train and place the special dogs that are needed to help veterans return to a life of ease and independence.
The golf portion of the day began at 11 a.m. with the national anthem and a visit from Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone. The golf match consisted of foursomes competing for several hole-in-one prizes. One of the hole-in-one prizes was for a brand new 2019 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck. Later in the day, golfers and guests enjoyed a post-tournament cocktail hour, followed by dinner with a live auction and raffles.
Throughout the day several veterans and their dogs toured the course to meet their fans.
