$50,000 Raised for Pet Shelter

Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club benefit held for Apache Junction Paws & Claws

Members of Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club recently held a benefit event for nearby Apache Junction Paws & Claws Care Center (PCCC). The event raised more than $50,000 for the animal shelter and will support the facility’s efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt-out abandoned and surrendered animals.

“At Superstition Mountain, community outreach is valued highly by our members and staff,” said Mark Gurnow, general manager of Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club. “This fundraiser for Paws & Claws is just the latest example of our membership coming together to support a great local organization.”

The event featured a silent and live auction with donated items and raffle baskets from members and local businesses. Attendees enjoyed a live performance by Marmalade Skies, a Beatles tribute band. Fry’s Food Stores sponsored a helicopter golf ball drop for additional prizes, and Superstition Mountain Executive Chef Eric Swartz provided an array of culinary treats to delight the crowd.

“The generosity of our Superstition Mountain membership will directly improve the well-being of the hundreds of lost, abandoned or unwanted animals that come to the Apache Junction Paws and Claws Care Center each year,” said Paige Beville, event organizer and Paws & Claws volunteer. “The Superstition Mountain community is made up of great and compassionate people who care deeply about helping those animals that deserve the same care and love we give our pets.”

Paws & Claws Care Center is the local animal control facility for residents of Apache Junction and provides services including: adoptions, licensing, public outreach and education. The PCCC provides shelter to cats and dogs that are owner surrendered, as well as strays, and protects the public from animal-inflicted injuries by providing education about animal behavior, care and control.
