 The 2nd Annual Baark! International Potcake Golf Tournament took place on the Ocean Club Golf Course on Paradise Island on Sunday. Alexander Peterkin and Jarad Nixon won the overall title.

On Sunday, December 12, a total of 118 golfers played in the 2nd Annual Baark! International Potcake Golf Tournament on the Ocean Club Golf Course on Paradise Island.

What started off as a rainy day turned into a glorious day for a round of golf and fun for all. Loyal golfers and Baark!’s 38 volunteers were not dismayed by the weather and the event exceeded this year’s fundraising goal.

In addition to the players, the new Baark! mobile clinic was on-site at hole six, performing 19 spay and neuter surgeries for local cats, allowing players to witness the great work being done in the clinic in real time.

Alexander Peterkin and Jarad Nixon, winners from this year’s tournament, won a three-night stay in Hope Town, Abaco, at Firefly Sunset Resort with airfare for four people on Bahamasair to Marsh Harbour and a golf cart rental from Hope Town Cart Rental.

Finishing second was David Knowles and Patrick Arthur. Darren Roberts and Patrick Stevenson came in third.

Other prizes included an iPhone 14 from Aliv, rounds of golf at Ocean Club, Albany, Baha Mar and Lyford Cay, gift certificates to Kyma, Sapodilla, Titan Hospitality, Social House and Chives, overnight stays to Kamalame Cay, McDuffs in Norman’s Cay, Island House, Atlantis, and Comfort Suites, plus fabulous gifts from Hope Town Canvas, Bahama Handprints, Goodfellow Farms, Coin of the Realm, Morley for Men and more.

The tournament was headlined by the title sponsor Aliv for the second year in a row and Aliv President John Gomez committed to sponsoring next year’s tournament as part of the company’s continued mission to support local programs that contribute to the overall betterment of society.

Baark! thanks all who came out to support this great event and looks forward to next year’s being even bigger and better.

The year 2022 has been a record year of spay and neuters for Baark! and the funds raised will go toward Baark!’s mission to end the unnecessary suffering of dogs and cats in The Bahamas through spay/neuter and education.
