2nd Annual Cheetah Conservation Golf Tournament

Cheetah Conservation Fund CHarity Golf TournamentRecently a tournament was posted to 18for4.com that caught our eye and we wanted to do a featured blog on the organization. Now the reason it caught our eye is that the tournament is being put on by the Cheetah Conservation Fund, and c’mon, who doesn’t like cheetahs!

Before I get into more about the Cheetah Conservation Fund, I wanted to put out the details for the golf tournament.  It sounds like it will be an amazing tournament and we highly recommend that you get a foursome to attend!

When: November 12, 2012
Where:  17166 StoneRidge Country Club Lane, Poway, CA, 92064

To learn more about the Cheetah Conservation Fund, we got in touch with Caitlin Curry who is the Golf Tournament Coordinator for the Cheetah Conservation Fund/Southern California Chapter.  She was great to meet and we appreciate her in taking the time to tell us more about this great non-profit.

18for4:  So what exactly is the Cheetah Conservation Fund?

“Founded in 1990 in Namibia by Dr. Laurie Marker, the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) is an international non-profit dedicated to the development of the best practices in research, education, and land use for the conservation of cheetahs and their ecosystems, benefitting all species, including people.

The Southern California Chapter, founded in 2010, have become a strong force in furthering CCF’s mission “to be the world’s resource charged with protecting the cheetah and ultimately ensuring its future on our planet,” through local fundraising and education.   We know that our efforts half way around the world can make a huge difference!”

18for4:  How successful was last year’s charity golf tournament?

“Last year’s event was CCF’s first ever golf tournament and proved not only to be an effective fundraiser but a great venue for bringing new faces to the efforts of CCF.  This year’s players and supporters consisted of both cheetah conservation veterans and those new to the plight of the cheetah.  It was our chapter’s biggest event to date and we couldn’t have done it without the generous support of our members, old and new.  Last year’s tournament was a real success and we hope to see lots of new faces next year at our second annual golf tournament!”

18for4:  If you can’t make the tournament, how else can you support the Cheetah Conservation Fund?

“If you can’t make it to the tournament you can help by making a donation through our website, CCFSanDiego.weebly.com, just click on the link on the homepage that says “donate”.  On our website, you can also find out about our many other educational and fundraising events we host throughout the year.  You can also help by making a donation, or sponsoring a cheetah or Anatolian shepherd through Cheetah.org, or taking a trip to visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia, Africa.  It would be trip you’d never forget!”

18for4:  How large is the organization?

“CCF has chapters in the USA, United Kingdom, Canada, and Japan and followers worldwide!  Go to Cheetah.org to find out more.”
