Collars & Scholars, HSSC’s newest humane education program, is a nine-week course that emphasizes the concepts of self-awareness, empathy, and compassion—for other people and for animals. This program is a joint venture of HSSC and The Florida Center for Early Childhood, brought together by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
HSSC developed interactive, engaging lessons for the pilot program at Gocio Elementary School and the results were tremendous. Our next assignment: expanding the program to schools throughout Sarasota County.
We invite you to join us for the 15th Annual Humane Society Golf Tournament benefiting the Humane Society of Sarasota County (HSSC). This event will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2019, at Laurel Oak Country Club. Check-in will begin at 7:30am. Enjoy a continental breakfast before the shotgun start at 8:30am. After a rousing round of 18 on one of Sarasota’s most challenging courses, settle in for a lunch reception and the announcement of the winning teams. Along the way, there will be prizes, a 50/50 drawing, and—of course—adoptable animals.
All proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit HSSC’s lifesaving mission. Four-person scramble rounds are $175 per player or $600 for a team of four, and sponsorships are available from $150-$3,000.
