Golfer putting golf ball on the green

Golfers who are interested in supporting the community are invited to Buckeye’s Sundance Golf Course on Saturday, May 1. 

Youngker High School students in Hands 4 Paws are hosting a benefit golf outing. Proceeds go toward a Kevlar vest for the Buckeye Police Department K9 Unit’s newest recruit, Drax. 

Additionally, a portion of all funds raised are used to support shelter/rescue animals. Hands 4 Paws strives to support community. Its next goal is to purchase a service dog for a disabled vet. 

Golfers can check in as early as 6 a.m. to use the range prior to the event. The cost is $350 per foursome by April 24 and $400 the day of the event, subject to availability. The price includes the use of the range and a golf cart; lunch; a swag bag and golf towel, donated by 3 Squirts Shirts; door prize tickets and other gifts.

The event will feature surprises, including games at various holes, the chance to win large and small prizes, and dogs for adoption. Earnhardt Hyundai donated a 2021 Tucson SE for the lucky entered winner of a hole-in-one.

The club’s sponsor, Marie Buquicchio, is also looking for sponsors for this event. The sponsorship levels range from $75 to $2,500, with a variety of ways to get a company’s name out there. Each sponsorship level comes with a logo posted on the event’s website,


Nongolfers can participate, too. Contact Buquicchio at for more details.
