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 and Culture Club are hosting a benefit golf outing. Proceeds go toward the students’ trip to Europe in June, and a Kevlar vest for the Buckeye Police Department K9 Unit’s newest recruit, Drax. 

Golfers can check in as early as 6 a.m. to use the range prior to the event. The cost is $300 per foursome if registered by April 17; $350 by April 24; and $400 the day of the event, subject to availability. The price includes the use of the range, 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 clubs’ 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.
