Mark Your Calendars for a GDA Weekend in Las Vegas

People come from all over the country to participate in the Guide Dogs of America training classes, which have set up thousands of people with a guide dog free of charge.

The Guide Dogs of America will be holding their 33rd annual William W. Winpisinger Charity Banquet on Nov. 23, 2013, at Bally’s Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The fundraiser will commemorate the 65th anniversary of the charity organization which, through a partnership with the IAM, provides guide dogs to thousands of people free of charge.

Past years have included events such as a golf tournament, motorcycle ride and skeet and trap shooting. There’s always ample opportunity to meet guide dog graduates, puppy raisers and puppies-in-training.

“We are always thrilled to help the Guide Dogs of America in any way we can,” said IAM International President Tom Buffenbarger. “Providing a higher quality of life for so many people through the addition of a guide dog is something truly special to be a part of.”

A more detailed itinerary will be available in the coming months.
