The 30th William W. Winpisinger Charity Banquet to benefit Guide Dogs of America (GDA) will be held Saturday, November 20, 2010, at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The annual event is the premier fundraiser for GDA, a charitable organization whose mission is to provide guide dogs to visually-impaired individuals free of charge. Founded by an IAM member in 1948, GDA and the Machinists Union have been strong partners ever since.
This year’s fundraising activities begin Thursday, November 18, with the Hawgs for Dogs motorcycle ride, followed by the benefit golf tournament November 19 and culminating with the Banquet on November 20.
Invitations with complete details about this year’s events will be mailed out by mid-July. You can also go to www.GuideDogsofAmerica.org for information as it becomes available.
