Benefits Humane Educational Society

Monday, June 18, 2018

The Humane Educational Society will host the fifth annual Drives for Lives Golf Tournament at the Lookout Mountain Club on Tuesday, July 17, to raise money for general operations and the Special Needs Fund. The Special Needs fund provides lifesaving care for homeless animals who are injured, sick, or in need of rehabilitation.

The Lookout Mountain Club’s golf course was designed and built in 1925 by renowned golf course architect Seth Raynor.  It is a world-class championship course recognized by Golfweek magazine as one of the “Top Classical Golf Courses” in America. 

Drives for Lives participants will enjoy complimentary alcoholic beverages from Heaven and Ale Brewing Co. all day as well as non-alcoholic beverages from Coca Cola Bottling Company. Complimentary lunch will be served and all players will receive a gift bag and event T-shirt at registration. Prizes will be awarded throughout the course and to the top three teams. The Chef and His Wife will provide snacks on the course and dessert will be provided by Chattacakes Bakery while the final scores are tallied. The Cigar Man will be on site offering players the opportunity to purchase a quality cigar to enjoy on the course and the top three teams will go home with a celebratory cigar. 107.9 Nash Icon will broadcast live from the event.

Players may participate in the Dixon Golf Driver Challenge for an opportunity to hit an additional drive with the Aurelius Emperor Driver and receive $150 in product certificates. One participant will receive a custom Aurelius Emperor Driver ($349) or a Zovatti watch ($500). Players can also purchase a raffle ticket to participate in the Dixon Golf $20,000 Legend Shootout. Four winners will get the chance to compete. The player that gets a hole-in-one will win $10,000 for themselves and $10,000 for the Humane Educational Society. 

Registration will begin at 11:30 a.m. with complimentary lunch being served before the 1 p.m. shot gun start.
