Cazenovia American Legion to raffle Turning Stone golf outing to fund service dogs for local veterans

— Members of Cazenovia American Legion Post 88 have announced the beginning of its “Vets Helping Vets” raffle, which will raise funds to support the “Dogs2Vet” program offered by Clear Path for Veterans, a privately funded outreach and wellness facility in Chittenango. The Dogs2Vet program partners a PTSD suffering vet with a shelter or rescue dog for service training, certification, companionship and a bond that promotes mutual wellness.

The legion’s goal is to adopt three or four dog/vet teams at a base cost of $1,200 per team. To achieve this, legion members approached Turning Stone Resort and, together with the Oneida Indian Foundation, are raffling a prize of an 18-hole golf pass for four players, which includes green fees, cart and use of driving range any day of the 2014 season at either the Kaluhyat or Shenendoah courses at Turning Stone Resort. The prize is valued at between $500 and $600.

At $10 per ticket, this is a great opportunity for someone to take three of their new best friends golfing at a world class facility.

Clear Path for Veterans offers job training and peer counseling, support meetings, weekly meals, senior vet mentoring and the “Dogs2Vets” program. Located on Salts Springs Road in Chittenango, Clear Path for Veterans serves more than 230 vets per month. For more information, call 687-3300 or go online to ClearPathforVets.com

For more information about the raffle or to purchase tickets, contact Cazenovia American Legion Post 88 at 655-2099 and by email at calPost88@windstream.net.
