What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

Since 1995, I have been a volunteer for Greyhound Rescue, Paws on the Mountain Greyhound Adoption. These beautiful dogs make excellent companions and need a place to live out their lives after their racing career is over. It is my passion to make as big an impact as I can to place as many retired racing Greyhounds into forever homes.

Why do you give through the CFC?

It's easy and provides my charity a constant income throughout the year.

How do contributions through the CFC help your cause?

Provides the needed funds to transport, vet, feed, house, and adopt retired racing Greyhounds.
