It’s that time of year again. Time to put your putt-putt skills to the test to raise some money for the Humane Society.

Of course, we’re talking about Putt for Paws, and the 11th annual installment of the local event is coming up on Saturday, Aug. 24 at Gator Golf in Fayetteville.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. with a mini-golf tourney, followed by lunch, live music, and a raffle at Foghorn’s on Green Acres Road beginning at around 10:30 a.m.

The entry fee is $25, and includes a round of mini-golf, a t-shirt, and a buffet-style lunch at Foghorn’s. Humane Society Members get $5 off their entry fee. Sponsorships are also available for businesses for $150.

A free shuttle service from the midtown Foghorn’s location (1815 Green Acres Rd.) will be provided to and from Gator Golf. Parking will be availabe at the restaurant, on Green Acres Road.

The event has grown to become big deal for the Humane Society over the years, raising over $100,000 for the organization since it began in 2009. All, as in 100%, of the proceeds from the event go directly to the Humane Society of the Ozarks, as any expenses not covered through donations are paid by Foghorn’s directly.
