Animal Shelter Benefit

Jan 05, 2022

Tito’s Putts for Paws Charity Golf Event a Resounding Success

On Saturday, December 18, Tito’s Putts for Paws Charity Golf Event took place at The Links at Divi Aruba with great success, for the Animal Shelter.

An avid animal lover, Tito Beveridge of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, based in Texas, has been sponsoring this event for the past several years in collaboration with Divi Resorts, The Links at Divi Resorts, and Divino Aruba. This year, the chosen beneficiary was the Aruba Animal Shelter, which has been rescuing, sheltering, and rehoming Aruba’s neglected dogs and cats for over 30 years on the island.

The event included a golf tournament, followed by an auction lunch at Windows on Aruba. The following local businesses supported the event through hole/course sponsorships: Interport Logistics LLC, Ben Real Estate, Ben Property Management, Veterinaire Kliniek Wayaca/Noord, Wix & Zeppenfeldt, Just 4 Pet NV, OP=OP, Laboratorio di Servicio, Botica di Servicio, Budget Rent A Car, Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino, Studio Advisory, Notariskantoor Rodriguez-Taekema, Gomez & Coffie, Tropical Bottling Company, La Cabana Beach Resort, Yemanja Woodfire Grill, and Dynaf.

Animal Shelter Benefit

Others supported by donating prizes for the golf tournament and auction items for the lunch auction, which raised over Afl. 15,000. Supporters included: Divino Aruba, Ultimate Automobiles, Cream of Wu, The Ritz-Carlton Aruba, Anita Hugen, Loretti Design Studio, T.H. Palm & Company, The Juggling Fish, Dog Stories, Meraki Art & Craft Studio, Cado de Lannoy, Elisa Lejuez, Taki Aruba, Armando Goedgedrag, Elvis Tromp, Miriam de L ‘isle, Rona Coster, Belinda de Veer, Boolchand’s Aruba, HK Tailors, Indulgence by the Sea, Pure Indulgence, Jolly Pirates, Aruba Aloe, Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, Ateliers ‘89, La Cabana Beach Resort, Las Ramblas, Infini, Boardwalk Boutique Hotel, FlyFit Studio, Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort, Claudy Felipe, Rienke Bosch-Wentink, and Kate Maduro.

This fundraising initiative is exactly what the Aruba Animal Shelter needed at this moment, given that Covid put a damper on its fundraising activities for the past two years, and that the Stimami Sterilisami program, unfortunately, came to an end a few months ago.

The cherry on top of the event was the adoption of two pups, aptly named Tito’s and Divi, as well as another shelter pup.

The Aruba Animal Shelter team would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all sponsors and supporters who made this event possible. The organization simply cannot carry out its work without such support. If you would also like to support the shelter, please visit or scan the QR code below to donate.
