Be A Hero For Nero


As a very tough week for our Cape Cod Community comes to an end, we can take some solace in seeing how the community has rallied in support of Officer Gannon’s family, Nero and the YPD. What happened in our community is something we always think only happens elsewhere, a Police officer’s life was taken, his young wife is now a widow, and his k9 partner has been critically wounded. His family has lost a son, a brother a nephew, the YPD has lost one of their own and our community has lost a hero. It is a loss we are all feeling.

Several local women, including myself, have come together and are planning a fundraiser to benefit the Cape Cod K9 Association and Nero. I am reaching out to local businesses to see if they would consider either a donation to our raffle or silent auction or a donation to our Doggie Bags for the event ( it is a dog-friendly event!). This donation is tax-deductible the EIN number is 04-3768613. I am trying to make a basket representing support of each of our Cape towns, I was wondering if you had any suggestion of places withing Sandwich who would be interested. Any help would be appreciated. Thak you.

The event date is May 10th and will be held at the HowlADay inn in West Yarmouth. Tickets will be on sale soon and we would also love it if you could make it to the “Dog Friendly” Event.

I look forward to hearing from you,
