The CM team kicked off our new CM Cares charitable initiative yesterday by taking part in the Virginia Beach SPCA’s 10th Annual Puttin’ for Paws Charity Golf Tournament. Four intrepid golfers from our staff braved the threat of rain to take part in the tournament, while two CM employees showed off potential pooches for adoption to tournament participants (as you can see from the picture below, the dogs were much more interested in another dog playing with a ball than they were with posing for pictures). Everyone had a great time, and one of “our” dogs even got an application put in for adoption!
We don’t have any word yet on how much money the VBSPCA raised yesterday, but we do know they need every penny: they take in over 7,000 animals every year, including both domestic animals and wildlife. They shelter and rehabilitate these animals, coordinate adoptions, run a mobile spay/neuter clinic, provide lost & found services, and much more. We’re definitely glad we could help out such a valuable part of our community!
