Join us for our 11h Anniversary Be the Light Gala, presented by Subaru, USA, on Friday, August 18th from 5-9 pm at L’Auberge Del Mar. Shelter to Soldier’s largest annual fundraiser, this event raises critical funds to support the rescue dogs and veterans served by the program’s mission. Guests will enjoy musical entertainment by Lady Rebecca Jade, small bites, libations and silent auction, three-course dinner overlooking the Pacific Ocean, event swag bags, and memorable moments with veteran recipients and the Shelter to Soldier staff. Our exciting silent and live auction will be emceed by Clint Bell. All proceeds from the event will benefit Shelter to Soldier’s programs serving military, veterans, and homeless dogs in need of a forever home and life of purpose.
Shelter to Soldier is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that adopts dogs from local shelters and rescue organizations and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Military Sexual Trauma (MST). The program also places emotional support animals (ESAs) with veterans and active duty military and deploy the STS Canine Ambassadors, a team of certified therapy dogs and their volunteer handlers, to provide visits of love and comfort to local military, veterans and their families.
We hope you’ll join our efforts with your contribution to our largest fundraising event of the year! For sponsorship inquiries, please email kyrie@sheltertosoldier.org.
