2022 Sponsor of Glimmer of Hope Fundraiser to Benefit At-Risk Animals

glimmer of hope

Part of our mission is to advocate for and improve the lives of those who need assistance–that includes the lives of our four-legged friends. We get to do just that once again as a $2,500 sponsor of the Phoenix Animal Care Coalition’s (PACC911) Glimmer of Hope event presented by Lulu’s Fund.

PACC911 is dedicated to helping the most at-risk animals have a “Glimmer of Hope” by providing life saving procedures through its critical care medical program. Funds raised through sponsorships like ours will be used to help ensure the organization can continue to do so.

For those not able to attend the event, there’s still time to give back and show your support by offering a donation at pacc911.org.

2022 Project Hero Honor Ride $5K Sponsor Recap

2022 Project Hero Honor Ride $5K Sponsor

Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team is pleased to once again sponsor Project Hero’s Las Vegas Honor Ride. For 2022, over 400 cyclists consisting of Healing Heroes and civilians rode side-by-side out of sign of unity, camaraderie, and support. 

All of Project Hero’s events help raise funds that are used to provide no-cost mental health and rehabilitation services to Veterans and First Responders affected by post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and other life-changing injuries. 

Ultimately, Project Hero is on a mission to increase awareness about the national mental health emergency and to offer a safe harbor for our heroes to regain hope and resilience as they recover from a triggering event that resulted in a TBI and/or PTSD.

“Over the past five years that we have been supporting Operation Hero, veteran suicide has decreased from 22 veteran suicides per day to 17. We are heartened to learn about the progress being made to support our Healing Heroes. It is our intent to continuously support this invaluable charity and all its efforts to provide accessible, no-cost health and wellness services to Veterans and First Responders struggling after a life-altering accident.” – Glen Lerner

Proud Sponsors of Humane Indiana Wildlife Center

As a presenting sponsor of Humane Indiana Wildlife (HIW) Center’s 2022 Festival of Owls, our Indiana team had a blast volunteering this past Friday at its wildlife center. The afternoon kicked off with a lunch and learn where our team learned all about what the organization does to rehabilitate native Indiana wildlife.

Then, the rest of the afternoon was spent preparing animal enclosures for the winter season by laying tarp and cleaning leaves and weeds. Our team even had the unique opportunity to meet and see a few of HIW’s animal ambassadors like a snowy owl and skunk!

How Does Humane Indiana Wildlife Center Give Back?

The Humane Indiana Wildlife Center takes in sick, orphaned, and injured native Indiana wildlife to be rehabilitated and released back into nature.

KABOOM! Playground Build in Fort Mojave, Arizona

On Saturday, October 22, our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team joined volunteers from the Fiesta Bowl Charities, BHHS Legacy Foundation, and KABOOM! to transform empty lots into a brand-new, state-of-the-art playground and sport court for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Colorado River’s Fort Mojave Clubhouse. 

These new facilities make exciting additions to the new clubhouse that was also recently built, as well as the 70,000+ square foot grass field that was transported to the site last spring after serving as the 2021 Guaranteed Rate Bowl field in downtown Phoenix. 

As a sponsor of the Fiesta Bowl Charities, we are thrilled to see how much can be achieved in one day when a community gets together to give back and do more for more than 800 local youth. We genuinely love being part of KABOOM! Playground builds and to see our sponsorship dollars in action!

To learn more about the development of the new Boys & Girls Clubs of the Colorado River’s Fort Mojave Clubhouse, and to stay up to date on all future events, please visit clubriver.org.
