All proceeds collected from the event will be given directly to paws4vetsfor the training and development of the Assistance Dogs that are provided to the selected veterans at no cost to them. By partnering with SyncroFlo, SPP Pumps and other local and national organizations, HFF has made it possible to raise awareness for this need in our community. John Kahren, President of SPP Pumps and Chairman of Heroes First Foundation said, "I believe local businesses should help to support unfulfilled needs in our community. Many of my employees are military veterans andfelt like additionalsupport for those veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress and other injuries caused in combat was going unnoticed. We immediately wanted to help provide funds to paws4vets after finding that they were making a positive impact for those who need this kind ofsupport".
