SAN MARTIN, Calif. - July 30, 2016 - PRLog -- Four-time top Hot Country Songs Billboard artist Philip Claypool is scheduled to perform at the "OFP Paws with Patriots" wine gala benefitting local non-profit Operation Freedom Paws (OFP) in San Martin, CA on August 13, 2016. OFP empowers veterans and others with disabilities to live a quality life by teaching them to train their own service dogs. Most of these dogs are rescued from shelters, then fostered at OFP after being evaluated for specific attributes that will make them good candidates for service work.

"We are excited to have Philip performing at our event! It is great for our veterans to see a celebrity show support by taking the time to come out and perform at our fundraiser," says OFP Founder and Executive Director Mary Cortani. OFP strives to decrease the veteran suicide rate by taking a holistic approach with the services their program offers. Mary says, "Training a service dog gives men and women who have served our country a new mission. It gives them purpose and hope. It teaches them to form a relationship with the dog that eventually develops into a lifeline that re-connects them to their families, friends and community." Philip Claypool's reputation will help this local non-profit educate a broader audience and draw in more guests to this annual sell-out event.

Buy your tickets today for the "OFP Paws with Patriots" Wine Gala to see Philip Claypool and honor the men and women who have served our country!

About Operation Freedom Paws

Operation Freedom Paws, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit, empowers veterans, adults and children with disabilities to live a quality life by teaching them to train their own dogs, and certifying them as service dog teams. The dogs, usually from rescue organizations or shelters, are carefully evaluated. Each is then matched to a specific client's physical and psychological needs. There is no charge--all we ask is a commitment to complete the 48-week training program.
