West Palm Beach, FL - Employees of the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and their best friends turned out in force on Saturday, February 11, for the annual "Paws for a Cause" Dog Walk event. Sponsored by SFWMD employees, the Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw and the Batchelor Foundation, this and other events to support the Warrior Canine Connection raised more than $35,000.
"We have so many caring employees who have a love for all animals, especially their pets. They organize this event and make it fun for the entire community," said SFWMD Governing Board Member Melanie Peterson. Peterson attended the event with two of her dogs, Presley and Nigel. "To spend a beautiful morning with all these pets, while raising money to help veterans who have served our country, is an honor and one of the blessings of being a part of the District."
