Send a message of “Faith, Hope, Peace and Love” this holiday season.
Susan De Antonio first became aware of Guide Dogs of America when her Soroptimist Club chose a member of their community to help under the club’s programs of service. Kenny Brown had lost his sight due to Multiple Sclerosis. He wanted to graduate with a guide dog so he could return to school and take computer science classes. The group spent a year raising the funds to sponsor a dog in Brown’s honor. (Guide Dogs of America provides guide dogs free of charge to blind individuals, but the group wanted to contribute to the school as its thank you for giving Brown his dog.)
Thank you to everyone who participated in GDA’s Annual Online Silent Auction. Guide Dogs of America is grateful to our community – all of our bidders, all of our generous donors, and all of our dedicated volunteers, puppy-raising families, and supporters!
Visit the auction site and bid from June 5 through June 15 at 6 p.m. PST. We have exciting travel and sports packages up for bid online and many treasures, including the impeccable GDA pendant pictured, handcrafted in 14 karat yellow gold and natural black onyx by Warren Marriott, Master Goldsmith (and a GDA volunteer puppy raiser).
