You Are Not Forgotten, a Northeast Ohio nonprofit organization, is hosting a benefit Saturday, May 21 to raise funds for a bulletproof vest for the Fairport Harbor Police Department’s K-9 dog, Anchor.
Magnus International Group’s Hardy Animal Nutrition is pleased to donate the first $500 to the cause. The cost for a basic police dog vest is approximately $900, and the best ones can run around $1,400. Magnus and Hardy want Anchor and his handler to have the nicest vest possible, so the company is contributing the $500 difference.
You Are Not Forgotten’s fundraiser will take place at the Fairport Harbor VFW from 4 to 8 pm at 540 New Street. The spaghetti dinner begins at 5 pm, and the evening also includes a 50/50 raffle, Chinese auction and music.
Tickets are available in advance or at the door for only $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.
For tickets or questions, call Frank at 440-381-3505 or Cheryl at 440-897-9792 (after 6 pm Monday-Friday). If you can’t attend the event, donations are appreciated!
