Print E-mail
altCome enjoy a scenic day with your boat and friends at Sumter’s own beautiful Lake Panasoffkee on March 26th, 2011 (raindate 3/27/11) while helping raise funds for the Humane Society/SPCA’s Green Shelter Fund. For only $18, boaters can enjoy a fun game of 5 Card Draw Poker, receive a delicious lunch from Werda-Heckamiat Fish Camp and the talents of Last Tyme Out String Band of the Villages for entertainment. The day activities will also include a silent auction and 50/50 chance drawing!

Boaters and their passengers who register from 8 a.m to 9 a.m. will tour the lake’s five fish camp docks: Werda-Heckamiat (R), Idlewild Fish Camp, PanaVista Lodge (R), Turtleback RV park and Tracy’s Point Fish Camp (R) for each of their five poker cards, then return to base by noon at Werda-Heckamiat to compare all poker hands. The best hand will receive half of the registration money. Boat rentals are also available at three of the stops mentioned with an “R” for those who wish to enter the poker run and take in the beauty of the lake too! Boaters can launch from any of these participating docks with slip fees waived for the event. Landlubbers and animal lovers are always welcome while the poker run is available only to those in watercraft. The silent auction and 50/50 will run until 1 p.m. and the live music will be from noon till two.

The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County continuously works hard to raise funds to construct Central Florida’s first green animal shelter in order to better serve Sumter’s growing demands. They only receive funding from donations by the public and receive no assistance from any government agency. Carol LeGrand, co-coordinator of this fundraiser stressed that “we must remind the public that the need for this shelter is always present and grows more urgent every year. Please join us in this fun event while learning how you can help get this animal shelter built sooner than later.” If you wish to send in your contribution to the “Green” Shelter campaign, please send your donation to the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc., PO Box 67, Lake Panasoffkee, FL 33538 or via their website with Paypal. Remember to mark your donation for the “Green Shelter Fund.”

Lake Panasoffkee’s Werda-Heckamiat Fish Camp is located 1.5 miles West of I-75 exit #329, off of CR 470, to 965 CR 439. For more information, visit hsspca.org or contact Claudia at 352-793-9117.
