Established by Shari Duval (wife of golfer Bobby Duval), K9s for Warriors is a Florida-based non-profit which annually offers 200 to 250 shelter dogs a new lease on life as service canines for veterans who are struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or traumatic brain injury. Care, food and accommodation for each canine, as well as training for each dog and veteran pairing, cost approximately $10,000.
Combining fun with philanthropy, the groundbreaking all-girl group is offering prizes for the two donors who contribute the most to the cause, and two donors chosen at random. Each of the winners will receive:
- A personal phone call from the band.
- A personalized outgoing voice mail message for the winner’s phone, recorded by The Go-Go’s.
- A signed Go-Go’s tote bag.
- A set of Gina Schock’s drumsticks and Charlotte Caffey and Jane Wiedlin’s guitar picks, which have helped to bring The Go-Go’s music to life on stage.
