Guide Dogs of America is honored to receive support from CW Good
Guide Dogs of America is honored to receive support from CW Good, the philanthropic arm of the CW Network. Their participation has come in the form of sponsorships, but also through building awareness of the work that GDA does. They are dedicated to educating the public on the incredible role that a guide dog can play in the life of someone who is visually impaired.
Last summer, GDA graduate Lorri Bernson spoke at a meeting of CW executives, during which she explained in depth about what GDA does and how her guide dog changed her life. In that meeting, an idea was formed: to create a TV show about a girl who is blind. Lorri’s visit was the catalyst to the new CW series, “In the Dark.” Perry Mattfeld, who has also starred in the TV show “Shameless,” will play the lead role of Murphy, a sarcastic but brilliant blind woman who sets out to solve the murder of her best friend. Murphy, of course, is accompanied on this mission by her trusted guide dog. Here is a clip of Mattfeld speaking about our very own Lorri and an excerpt from a recent presentation about the new series in New York.
