The Phur Seasons to host "Wash Your Dog" fundraiser for Discovery Canyon

To find money for school activities, students are getting creative. On Sept. 22, The Phur Seasons will host a “Wash Your Dog for DCC” day where it will give half of the proceeds to the DCC middle school girls softball team for new uniforms.
Sept. 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Colorado Springs, Colo. – Isn’t it just a sign of the times? With schools cutting funding for sports and after-school programs left and right, some would say that today’s students are left with less development and extra-curricular learning opportunities compared to previous generations.

Some students and schools, however, don’t see it that way. Some see it as an opportunity in learning self-sufficiency.

When the Discovery Canyon middle school girls’ softball team found that the school couldn’t afford new uniforms, they didn’t take that as the end all. Instead, they partnered with a local business to set up a day to raise funds for their team.

On Saturday, September 22, 2012, The Phur Seasons Pet Spa will host a “Wash Your Dog for DCC” day in which it will donate half of the proceeds from the day’s washes to the DCC middle school girls softball team.

“We are a community that needs to support each other,” said Kyle Davidson, The Phur Seasons owner. “It really is a creative partnership. We get to feel good about helping these girls reach their goal of getting new uniforms and, as a new business in the area, we are gaining exposure with families. It’s a win-win.”
