EVENT DATE Jan 25, 2016

THE STORY:

Andrew turned 15 on January 25th! Instead of a birthday party and birthday presents, he decided to dedicate his festivities to others. It didn't take him very long to decide as he pretty much had an idea in mind - he chose our very own Huntington Beach Canine Association!!! Andrew met with Officer Wade Wilson and K-9 Marco and after much discussion decided he would like to raise money for K-9 tactical vests. These vests are very important for the K-9's and their handlers as they enable the K-9's to be lifted into attics or over barriers, lowered into crawl spaces or ship hulls, and rappelled down walls or fast-rope from helicopters. They are ideal for drag line extractions of non-compliant suspects as well as insertion tactics including sky diving. Andrew and his family are so excited about this venture that they actually started a group called Saying Thank You whose mission is to acknowledge and support the many men and women first responders. We decided to make Andrew's wish the VERY FIRST service project of Saying Thank You and we would be so honored and thankful to have your support!!
