HUMMELSTOWN, Pa., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Veterinary Foundation (PVF), the charitable arm of the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association (PVMA), is hosting a charity golf outing on Saturday, May 14, 2011, at Lederach Golf Club in Harleysville, PA. Members of the public and veterinary community are encouraged to participate, and the registration fee includes a contribution to PVF. Golfers may register as single players or as a foursome. Online registration is available at

Monies raised through the golf outing will benefit PVF's annual student scholarship program, Native American Veterinary Services (NAVS)—a volunteer organization which provides veterinary care to animals living on Native American reservations in the southwest, and The Last Chance Fund (TLC), which reimburses veterinarians who provides emergency treatment to abused, neglected, or unowned companion animals.

Not a golfer? You can still help! Even non-golfers are able to participate in the event! In fact, you could win $1,000 by purchasing tickets for the GOLF BALL DROP which will take place immediately following the golf tournament on May 14. Each numbered ticket corresponds to a numbered golf ball that will be taken up in a helicopter and dropped onto the course. If your numbered ball is closest to the pin, you win $1,000 in cash! You do not need to be present to win. However, if you would like to witness this unique event, you may purchase a ticket for dinner and join us. Cost is $5/1 ball, $50/12 balls, $100/25 balls, and $40 for dinner. To purchase tickets without registering for golf, call 1.888.550.7862.

The tournament will feature many contests and prizes—even the chance to win a car in the hole-in-one contest!

The mission of PVF is to help veterinarians create a healthier future for animals and you through funding veterinary student scholarships and supporting animal welfare initiatives such as the Native American Veterinary Services (NAVS) and The Last Chance Fund (TLC).
