According to Shelter to Soldier Co-Founder and Operations Director Kyrié Bloem, "Shelter to Soldier is honored to be in our 5th year of service to U.S. veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom and to shelter dogs eager to live a life of purpose. We're fortunate to have a vast community of supporters including the Wood Family (Jim, Amy, Danielle and Anthony) behind our mission that helps advance our cause, and we look forward to serving more veterans and dogs in need with the support of everyone who attends the gala celebration. We're particularly grateful to Griffin Funding who will be sponsoring their 4th rescue dog with their Platinum Gala Sponsorship."
