Four Pets for Four Vets Donation Match

4 Pets for Vets Donor Sponsors

EXCITING UPDATE:

Kevin Rowe upped the ante by agreeing to give Soldier’s Best Friends a total of $8,500 to help bump the total funds raised for Veterans to just under $60k! 

The original amount Lerner and Rowe Gives Back planned to donate was $4,500. It was then raised to $5,000.

However, during Kevin’s on-air interview with KSLX, a grand total amount was announced for the fundraiser. At that point he decided to increase the total donation amount to $8,500.

Which helped bump the final tally to just under $60k – so 12 Veteran’s will be paired with a service companion!!! On average Soldier’s Best Friend pairs an approximately 60 soldiers and dog a year.

Listen to Kevin’s KSLX FM interview now regarding Lerner and Rowe Gives Back’s donation to Soldier’s Best Friend.

Donation Match to Benefit Soldier’s Best Friends

Soldier’s Best Friend is an Arizona-based 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization who are dedicated to pair, train and provide service dogs and at no cost to the veteran. All this week Mark and Neanderpaul of KSLX team up with Soldier’s Best Friend to help raise funds to cover the costs of pairing four specialty-trained dogs with four Vets with disabilities. Lerner and Rowe Gives Back loves how these radio hosts are taking action to make a difference in the lives of four local combat Veterans.

To help reach this goal of pairing four pets with four Vets, we’ve agreed to pitch in and match up to $4,500 in donations – the price of one dog!

Join us is giving back! Make a donation now at kslx.com/4-pets-for-vets.

Forever Homes for Forever Friends

Once a Veteran and dog are paired, they will train together to build a trusting relationship that saves two lives at once and inspires countless others.

How are two lives saved at once? Because another exemplary quality of Soldier’s Best Friend is that most of the dogs the organization works with are rescued from local shelters.

So donations not only help improve the life of a Vet living with a disability, they also help a homeless dog be placed into a forever home!

 

6th Annual Centennial High School Football Golf Tournament Sponsors

Charity Golf Fundraiser

Packbackers Booster Club - Centennial High School

Tee Off for Centennial High School Football Program

Lerner and Rowe gives back to Centennial High School Football athletes by sponsoring their 6th Annual Golf Tournament hosted by the Centennial Packbackers Booster Club. The charity event takes place at GCU Golf Resort in Phoenix on Saturday, June 9th, 2018.

Budget Cuts Chopping Away at School Sports Programs

Due to budget cuts effecting high school sports, a portion of funds raised from the golf tournament will directly assist these local student athletes. Most importantly, offset team expenses no longer covered.

Doing so gives the team a chance to focus on the game. And, less on whether or not there are funds for:

  • New uniforms;
  • Much needed equipment;
  • Player camps;
  • Field repairs; and,
  • Other items.

The temporary switch from the football field to golf greens also makes for a fun fundraising alternative.

Tradition of Success

The Centennial High School football program has a tradition of success reflected by the team’s wins to include: Arizona Division II State Champions for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2014 and 2017. The Packbackers group of volunteers and friends of the football players and coaching staff make all the difference in supporting the continued success of the program.

To learn more about Centennial Football’s annual golf tournament Lerner and Rowe supports, contact Chris Baker at 602-558-4916.

Get Better Acquainted with the Centennial Packbackers Booster Club

The Packbackers are a nonprofit 501c(3) group compiled of a group of volunteers that include family members, parents, alumni and friends of Centennial Football players and coaching staff. All of whom dedicate themselves to providing financial support for the continued success of the Centennial High School football program.

If you would like to get involved in supporting the team, feel free to contact a Packbacker Board Member.

In Maricopa County, many school children have to face each day without the guarantee of a nourishing, wholesome breakfast in the morning. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s the fuel your body uses to power your body and mind. This is why it is of the utmost important that children are properly fed before beginning their school day. Valley of the Sun United Way seeks to end this concern for low-income families by providing nutritious breakfast to 130 schools in our county.

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back are proud to support their efforts by being a $5k Supporting Sponsor of the We Are UNITED- Women United Luncheon. This signature event seeks to raise funds to put towards hunger-ending efforts, such as Breakfast in the Classroom and WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks, in Maricopa County.

The Luncheon will take place from 11:30am to 1:30pm, with a VIP reception preceding the event at 10:30am.
