When Eugene and Lucille Peters began to research a cause to name in their trust, two things led them to Guide Dogs of America: their mutual love of dogs and Lucille’s decades-old memory of her co-worker, whose son was blind.
Guide Dogs of America’s annual Online Silent Auction is set for June 4-14! Since 1948, GDA has been providing specially trained guide dogs to blind men and women free of charge. Fundraisers such as our Online Silent Auction are essential to help continue our mission.
This year’s quilt, “Dogs are the Spice of Our Lives,” was crafted and donated by the Santa Clarita Valley Quilt Guild. The quilt, which measures 108″ x 108,” features 36 hand-stitched blocks and a many-faceted look at man’s best friend.
This extremely popular annual raffle prize takes you behind the scenes of GDA, where you will observe the trainers working with our incredible dogs.
