6th Annual Driving for Drafts Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the CT Draft Horse Rescue
Portland Golf Course
169 Bartlett Street
Portland, CT 06480
Event Dates and Times
In 2015, the CT Draft Horse Rescue rescued a neglected, emaciated Clydesdale from shipping to a slaughter auction in PA to soon discover that this horse was Duke, a former Budweiser Clydesdale. As he regained his health, Duke quickly became a local celebrity at CDHR, making appearances at events, including the golf tournament, and posing for pictures with visitors. Sadly, Duke passed away about a year after his rescue, surrounded by his loving volunteer caretakers. To honor Duke’s memory, CDHR named this annual golf tournament after him.
This event will be held on Saturday, September 19th at the Portland Golf Course (169 Bartlett St, Portland, CT 06480). Shotgun start at 1:00pm, with check-in beginning at 12:00pm. Enjoy a grilled lunch and a buffet dinner along with raffles, auctions, and prizes. $125 per person. Sponsorships are also available, including an “In Memoriam” sponsorship to honor a loved one or a pet. All proceeds benefit the rescue horses at CDHR! Registration closes on September 4th.
Driving for Drafts is proudly sponsored by CT Horse-Cremation and the HK Dairy Barn.
