Golf outing raises funds for sheriff’s K-9 unit.




HART — A K-9 Fundraiser Golf Outing at the Colonial Golf Course/Sandbaggers Bar and Grill Sunday, June 25, boosted funds for the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office new K-9 Unit.

A total of 30 three-person teams participated in the event, which was spearheaded by Hart resident Mary Riddell, who works at Colonial. Mary wanted to support the endeavors of the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office in getting a K-9 unit back in Oceana County and had approached Sheriff Craig Mast about a fundraiser.

Mary was assisted by Kimber Mast and a few others in contacting many local area businesses (and even a few out-of-the-area businesses) who graciously sponsored holes and provided raffle and silent auction items. The top prize was a weekend golf/lodging package at the Treetops Resort in Gaylord.

Sheriff Mast told the approximately 90 golfers at the outing that the sheriff’s office just acquired the K-9 the previous week, and events like the golf outing will allow the K-9 program to succeed now and well into the future. He also thanked everyone for their hard work bringing the fundraiser together, as well as the community for its continued support of the K-9 program.

“There are so many individuals and businesses that had a hand in making this happen, and we can’t thank them enough. The public support for this program is overwhelming,” Mast said.

Anyone who would like to donate to the sheriff’s office K-9 unit can do so by visiting the sheriff’s office Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
