The second annual Birdies for AnimalSave Golf Tournament was held last Saturday at Nevada County Country Club, hosted by Marge Rademaker and her husband, NCCC golf pro Mike Rademaker.

Coming home first in the scramble format was the team of Ron Gaynor, Jeff Liddle, Ted Schoppe and Rob Barker with a net score of 49.5.

Second place went to the team of Steve Adams, Sharon Reeder, Steve Graham and David Will with a net 53.1. Rick Bringel, Martin Mortensen, Jerry Wilson and David Schwarz took third with a net 55.6, followed by Mike Blackston, Rick Honey and Brad Branstad with net 55.8. Long Drive Contests were won by Debe Wilson and Dave Korn.

AnimalSave has served the local community since 1998, with a mission of transforming the lives of cats and dogs by providing humane education, affordable spay and neuter services, and by finding loving homes for animals. Golfers were treated to a fun day on the course, lunch by Christopher’s Deli and Old World Catering, and great raffle prizes, all while raising money for a worthy cause.

A big thank you goes out to all the sponsors who made this fundraiser such a success.
