Eagleville invited to lend a helping hand to vets living with PTSD

August 20, 2017 by  

Canine Partners for Life (CFL), which is a group that trains and provides service and trained home, residential and courthouse companion dogs, will be the beneficiary of the annual Justin Pashley PTSD Awareness event, and an invitation has been issued to all to come and share in this Eagleville area evening.

The occasion will open with time for the guests to have a drink while they mingle with new friends and old, which will be followed by a sumptuous buffet-style meal with lots to choose from. A garden salad, as well as beef, chicken, and salmon dishes, will be available, as will a side dish of seasoned smashed potatoes, green beans with slivered almonds, fresh rolls, and whipped butter.

Along with the food, there will be raffles, an even split draw, and more Representatives of CFL will be on hand to answer questions and share stories about how the organization has made a difference in people’s lives. Only a limited number of tickets will be sold, but donations will also be appreciated.

The organizers noted that it can cost as much as $30,000 to train and provide care for a service dog, and the proceeds from the night will help to ensure one is available for each vet who needs this type of assistance. Banners and other decoration for this type of event can be supplied by an area printer.

November 17 has been chosen as the date for this function, which will be held at The Columbia Station in Phoenixville. More information can be found on its event listing.
