A golf fundraiser to raise money for upgrades to a local dog park will be held this weekend.

A fundraiser to upgrade a local dog park will be held on Saturday from 3 to 8 p.m. at The Glen Bar & Grill, at the Fraser Glen Golf Course on South Parallel Rd.

Tickets to the event are $20 and include a cheeseburger, fries and beer. There will be a silent auction, 50/50 draw, driving range, putt contests and more.
