FACE animal charity hosts golf tourney Nov. 2 in Solana Beach


The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) will host its fourth annual golf tournament on Monday, Nov. 2, to benefit local pets in need of emergency care and assistance.

This dog-friendly event will be held at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club and will allow golfers to bring their canine friends to the course. Players will also be joined by special VIP guests and MLB legend Fred Lynn and PGA Major Tour winner Corey Pavin, who have supported the foundation since its inception in 2006. This year’s tournament will honor San Diego’s service men, women, and dogs.

FACE was established to combat a terrible, but increasingly common occurrence called “economic euthanasia” — when loving pet owners are forced to euthanize sick or injured pets because they cannot afford the medical care for expensive but treatable conditions. FACE is an organization that strives to save lives, reduce economic euthanasia, and increase the wellness of San Diego’s beloved pets every day. To date, FACE has saved the lives of nearly 1,300 pets in the San Diego community. All proceeds from the Golf Tournament will help sick or injured pets and their families during a time of need.

Service men and women are also often faced with unaffordable veterinary emergencies. Luckily, FACE has been there to aid more than 100 military families and veterans to provide necessary assistance. “I am speechless,” said a FACE recipient. “Words cannot express how appreciative we are for the help. I am a Marine Corps combat veteran; I do not know what I would have done without FACE Foundation.” This year’s Invitational Golf Tournament will be joined by a veteran grantee and his dog, Myles.
