Giving Back - DogFest 2015

October 04, 2015  •  2 Comments

I left “Corporate America” in February of this year and have been blessed with the opportunity to start a second career in photography, something that I love to do. I’ve always felt a strong desire, as well as responsibility, to give back to my community, and had the opportunity to donate my photography to another terrific charitable event this past weekend.

Robyn, Rambo and I had the pleasure of working with a great group of people in support of Dog Fest, which is an annual event supporting Canine Companions for Independence (http://www.cci.org/site/c.cdKGIRNqEmG/b.3978475/k.3F1C/Canine_Companions_for_Independence.htm). CCI is a non-profit organization founded in 1975 that provides, at no charge, highly-trained assistance dogs to individuals with disabilities. Dog Fest Walk ‘n Roll is their annual fund-raising event that takes place in several locations across the United States. We participated in the Atlanta event on Saturday October 3.

It was a great experience hearing stores from some of the recipients of these dogs and how much they have enhanced their lives. The weather didn’t quite cooperate for the day’s events, but it was still a great turnout!

I am excited and grateful to have been a part of this, and plan to join them again next year. You can click on the link below to learn more about CCI here in Atlanta. And of course donations are always welcome!
