More than 450 friends helped us raise $90,000 at this year’s Canine Walk & Family Fair! All monies raised will go directly towards helping children and adults who are blind or visually impaired gain the skills they need to be active and independent. Sincere thanks to our Best in Show Sponsor Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Top Dog Sponsors Rosenberg, Freedman & Lee and Highland Street Foundation, and Companion Dog Sponsors Bernie & Phyl’s, Boston Bruins, Century Bank, Dunkin Donuts, FM&M, Hanscom Federal Credit Union, Kronos, Mutual of America, Schlesinger & Buchbinder and Vanda Pharmaceuticals. Thanks also to Woburn Host Lions Club, Woburn Middlesex Lions Club, Woburn Breakfast Lions Club, Waltham Lions Club, and all of the other Lions Clubs that managed the cookout and helped in countless ways.

We are grateful for everyone’s friendship and support!
