Doggone good cause: Event helps veterans get service dogs

A crowd of several hundred people turned out at Gator Harley-Davidson in Leesburg on Saturday for a fundraiser for the local nonprofit One Team One Fight 4 PTSD. All proceeds from the event were to be donated to Service Dogs for Patriots, a nonprofit that gives local veterans trained service dogs, often rescued from shelters, at no charge.

The fundraiser featured live entertainment, raffles, vendors and food trucks. Six bands donated their time for the entertainment. The event ran from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and was hoping to raise enough money to cover the expense of training four or five dog/veteran teams, which typically runs about $5,500 per team.
