Putting for puppies and caddies for cats at Kelowna golf tournament

The 13th annual Bubba Open takes place July 8

It’s the battle of dogs versus cats and it all goes down this weekend during the annual Bubba Open golf tournament.

The fundraising event looks to bring together animal lovers each summer to tee off in support of AlleyCats Alliance and Paws it Forward.

There are 144 golfers registered for the 13th annual Bubba Open, which includes an online auction and a unique challenge.

The challenge comes after an anonymous dog lover donated $5,000 at last year’s event for Paws it Forward. Now, this year cat adorers are being challenged to beat the $5,000 donation with a larger single amount. It will be a great challenge to prove once and for all “cats rule and dogs drool.”

The shotgun start event takes place at Sunset Ranch on July 8 at 1 p.m.

Registration is full but the fundraiser is still excepting donations by emailing or checking out the event’s Facebook page.
