MILTON, Ga. – There’s just a month until the Milton Police Department holds its “K-9 Support” golf tournament May 1 to raise funds to replace a retired police dog, DaSilva.

The tournament will take place at Echelon Golf Club, 501 Founders Drive, Milton. It includes registration and breakfast at 8 a.m., a shotgun start at 10 a.m. and a reception and awards ceremony at 3 p.m.

Cost to play in the tournament is $125 per golfer or $500 for a team of four. Sponsorship levels include $7,500 (platinum), $3,000 (gold) and $1,500 (silver), with each level promising various corporate signage and placement in tournament literature.

To register or make a donation over the phone, call 678-242-2570. Credit cards are accepted.

Officer Ara Baronian said since DaSilva’s retirement in late 2012 after six years of service to the department, Milton has been without a needed K-9. DaSilva was privately donated to the city from residents, and the department needs help again to ensure effective policing.

For more information on the tournament or the fund, contact Baronian at 678-242-2570 or ara.baronian@cityofmiltonga.us.
