PRIDE is going to the DogFest – Saturday, September 30 – 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
Life is more fun with friends… and dogs! Fountaingrove Lodge has a connection with Canine Companions for Independence, headquartered in Santa Rosa. Jenny Latourette, our Health/Fitness Director has Luca, a Canine Companions Breeder, Drue Mordecai, our Marketing Director, had a much-loved, released Canine Companions dog. A number of residents donate privately. We have volunteered as a group, with a lunch during Team Training. We held a “Pie Day” a few months ago and it raised $863. Many of us have taken the tour, or attended a graduation, and more will soon. We believe in Canine Companions, and we especially like that it supports our disabled veterans.
Now, we’re putting together a team to participate in Canine Companions’ DogFest Walk ‘n Roll. We can show our Pride, walk our dogs and raise some money for a great cause.
If you are up for the challenge, join our team and walk with us. Or you can simply donate online. It all goes towards the goal of giving more people with disabilities the experience of love and independence that comes with a highly trained Canine Companions assistance dog, FREE of charge. There will be a sign-up sheet in the alcove for a ride when September comes.
