ABRA Auto Body & Glass helped to raise more than $40,000 during the second annual Bent Creek Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Helping Paws Inc.
More than 100 golfers and guests gathered at the Bent Creek Golf Course in Eden Prairie, Minn., on August 11, 2014 to support Helping Paws of Hopkins, Minn.
The second annual golf event is part of Helping Paws’ initiative to provide the healing power of service dogs to disabled veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The cost of raising and training a service dog is estimated at $30,000. The canine companions will assist in transitioning returning veterans back to civilian and home life.
“We are honored to partner with important organizations like Helping Paws to support our veterans,” says Duane Rouse, ABRA’s president and CEO. “We want to give back to our veterans in recognition of the sacrifices they make for our freedom and country. Supporting Helping Paws to help heal our military heroes is our privilege.”
