Golf Tournament

golftouneylogoThe Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter (RABAS) is adding a new event this year to our fundraising activities and we would love for you to be a part of it. We are having a Golf Tournament.
Our golf tournament is scheduled at the Prairie Du Chien Country Club
Saturday, June 13, 2015.
This will be a four person step aside tournament. The cost is $60.00 per person and includes 18 holes of golf with a cart and a small meal. Shotgun start at 10:00 A.M. Registration starts at 9:00 A.M.
Prizes will be awarded to the first two teams in each of the following categories:
  • Four Person Female Team
  • Four Person Male Team
  • Mixed Couples (two male, two female)
To sign your team up for this event please call one of the following:
  • Brenda Wilson - 608-317-7001

  • Prairie Du Chien Country Club – 608-326-6707
We would also like to ask you to please consider being a hole sponsor.
Hole sponsorship is $50.00. A sign with your company or family name on it will be placed on the golf course during the tournament. This would be a great way to show your support for our less fortunate animal friends as well as your love for your own furry family members.
We are also having a memory / in honor of board. For $5.00 you can have your pets name on the memory / in honor of board which will be displayed in the club house.
Please contact Linda Richmond or Brenda Wilson at the above numbers to get your pets name on the wall. If you would be able to sponsor a hole, please send your check for $50.00 to:
Linda Richmond
1101 South 15th St.

The deadline for the hole sponsorship is Friday, May 22 so we have time to get each sign made.
You can pay your golf entry fee the day of the tournament.
Thank you all for your consideration in helping Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter with our fundraising efforts. Your generosity is so appreciated.

    Pizza Hut Guest Server Night

    DSC_0027Rivers & Bluffs Animal Shelter (RABAS) volunteers Dr. Jami Quick, Tina Osterhaus, Jill Cipra and Bev Pozega learned the fine techniques of waitressing in efforts to raise funds for a desperately needed animal shelter for the PdC area. Monday evening, March 16th, the group took part in Pizza Hut’s Guest Server Night. All tips generated between 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. were donated to RABAS. As part of Guest Server Night, Pizza Hut generously matches up to $500 of those tips. “Once again, the community came out to show their support for this worthy cause” said Bev. “In fact, we surpassed the $500 match requirement and were amazed to realize $924 in the tip jar” added Tina. The group will receive a check for an additional $500 from Daland Corporation DBA Pizza Hut in a few days, according to Cindy Spiker, manager of Your Hometown Pizza Hut. Chance, RABAS’ large and furry mascot helped to spread the word about Guest Server Night by strolling in front of the restaurant.

    For more information on Rivers & Bluffs Animal Shelter, please visit our website at or contact Bev at  (608)326-2914. Donations are tax deductible and may be mailed to RABAS PO Box 421 PdC, WI 53821
