Leader Dogs for the Blind
2013 Leader Dogs Classic
We have set the dates for the 2013 events, the Blind Golfer tournament will be held Saturday and Sunday, April 27 & 28, and the public charity golf event will be held on Monday, April 29. Over the past twenty-five years, Leader Dogs’ supporters have facilitated the placement and training of guide dog teams making possible the independence of those visually challenged through the work of the national Leader Dogs for the Blind organization. Leader Dogs for the Blind, established in 1939 by a group of Michigan Lions Club members, has bred, trained and placed almost 15,000 guide dogs all provided at no charge to deserving blind (and deaf) individuals throughout the country.
Every dollar of support, each donation raised, are all generated from private sources; Leader Dogs for the Blind does not rely on any public funding or government programs. The process to empower those affected by their physical impairments, to allow them to employ learned skills that will last their lifetime, is a profound experience. To provide freedom with a trusted dog guide companion, to improve self worth and to create productivity and joy all in one all-encompassing program, is a truly important and significant cause.
I respectfully request that you and/or your company participate in our most worthwhile events. We have improved our offerings to provide more value and exposure as our Sponsors deserve, please consider increasing your participation if possible to do so. Please know how much your company’s contribution and involvement mean to all of the volunteers here at the LDC and to all those beneficiaries you make possible.
Please contact me directly to secure your sponsorship or for any additional information you may desire.
I look forward to seeing you all!
