Benefits Leader Dogs for the Blind
The Lions Club of Rochester, MI. is holding this Camero Raffle to benefit Leader Dogs for the Blind. Founded by three Detroit area Lions Clubs members in 1939, Leader Dogs for the Blind provides dog guides to people who are blind and visually impaired to enhance their mobility, independence and quality of life. Each year, over 270 students attend our 26-day residential training program to be paired with a dog guide. This is a life-changing event that opens the doors to independence, safety and self-worth for many of our students.
In addition to our dog guide program, we offer programs that enhance a person’s independence and quality of life in other ways, including Accelerated Mobility, Trekker GPS training, computer courses and seminars for Orientation and Mobility professionals. Currently, Leader Dog is the only facility in the Western Hemisphere to teach Deaf-blind students to work with a dog guide.
Thanks to generous donations from our supporters, all of our services are provided free of charge to students, including room and board and travel to and from our campus in Rochester Hills, Michigan, for students living in North America.
A 2010 Camaro! To learn more about this great looking car here’s a bit of a run down…
“As it was then, so it is now. The Camaro, born more than 40 years ago as Chevrolet’s reply to the pioneering Ford Mustang, is coming out of retirement (since 2002) for a new fight with the namesake ponycar. It’s set to bow for 2010 in two coupe models–V6 and V8. The V6 cars will be offered in LS or LT trim, and the V8 is dubbed SS. The LT and SS models will be available with a RS appearance package that includes HID headlamps with integrated halo rings, a rear spoiler, specific taillamps, and 20-inch wheels. Convertible versions join up about nine months later. Chevrolet recently confirmed these plans after splashy concept previews at the 2006 and ’07 Detroit Auto Shows. Recalling the days when the Big Three were the big players, Dodge revived its Nixon-era Challenger (1970-74) for 2008.” (Read the rest of the article on ConcumerGuideAuto)
