National Gala Luncheon Honoring K-9 Battle Buddies
March 17th, 2015
All Americans owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to military dogs and their hero handlers on the other end of the leash, and on March 17, these brave two- and four-legged members of the military will be honored at a very special event in Palm Beach.
Philanthropist Lois Pope and American Humane Association, the country’s first national humane organization, will welcome four military dog teams to the “K-9 Battle Buddies Luncheon” at the Mar-a-Lago Club. Also appearing will be country music legend Naomi Judd, “America’s Veterinarian” Dr. Marty Becker, and guests will enjoy special musical performances from “American Idol’s” Stefano Langone, the Alex Donner Orchestra, and the widely acclaimed singing duo of Will and Anthony Nunziata.
Rounding out the touching afternoon will be a special address on values-based leadership from retired Army First Sergeant Matt Eversmann, one of the heroes of the Battle of Mogadishu whose story was immortalized by actor Josh Harnett in the film, “Black Hawk Down.”
