Why This Event

 Please help us give back to those who have sacrificed so much for our country…

     Saturday, October 9th and Sunday, October 10th 2021, the Montauk Hook and Slice Foundation will be hosting the Montauk “Hook & Slice” fund raising fishing and golf tournament for charity.  The event will be held at the Montauk Lake Club located in Montauk, NY.

     The Montauk Hook and Slice foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, tax ID # 46-3676818 that provides a way for people to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for our country.  Our goal is to host an annual fund raising fishing and golf tournament that is attended by as many injured veterans and their families as possible.  Some of the proceeds from the event will be used to show these veterans and their families a great time whether fishing, golfing, or just spending some time in beautiful Montauk, NY.  Additional funds raised will be distributed to other military charities. Thank you to all of you who participated in making our past events so successful!

Past beneficiaries include:

Paws of War trains and places rescued dogs to serve and provide independence to our United States military veterans who suffer the emotional effects of war. They work to provide independence to these military veterans. Most of their rescued dogs have been abandoned at shelters through no fault of their own. Every dog is trained for a specific veteran to fulfill his or her needs. Some veterans affected by PTSD need a sense of protection and security that only a service dog can provide. Service dogs can be trained to retrieve items for a wheelchair bound veteran, or help with balance for a veteran suffering from TBI (traumatic brain injury). Other veterans require an emotional support dog and others simply want a comfort/companion animal. Animals have been a proven method of supplying emotional support and service to people of all walks of life and are indeed some of the best holistic remedies for wellness. All dogs are evaluated prior to training and specifically matched up with a veteran. The veteran is involved in the training process. All training and initial veterinary costs are absorbed by Paws of War.  Paws of War’s motto: Helping both ends of the leash! And that is what we do!  For more information on Paws of War, please visit their website: www.pawsofwar.org
