It's thanks to events like this that Leader Dogs for Blind in Rochester Hills was recently able to renovate their training facility.

"It was a $14.5 million dollar renovation that makes our facility state of the art, one of the best in country," said Melissa Weisse, Chief Philanthropy Officer for LDB. "We're able to breed and more dogs in a happy, safe enviroment which means we get to help more people."
