NEADS Honored by SKAL Boston

December 20, 2022

On December 15, NEADS was honored as the 2022 charity recipient of the SKAL Boston Chapter annual holiday luncheon, which raised $50,000 for our mission to breed, raise, and train World Class Service Dogs. Skål Internationalis a global organization which brings together tourism and hospitality professionals across chapters worldwide.

NEADS Service Dog Ambassadors Verna and Loring, with Chief Development and Programs Officer, Cathy Zemaitis (center), were on hand to accept the donation from SKAL Boston’s 2022 President, Mary Chin (left) and David Colella GM, the Colonnade Boston (right), our hosts. The event included a Silent Auction, and our NEADS holiday pop up shop gave guests the opportunity to shop for our cause.

We are grateful to the SKAL Club Boston for its warm welcome and incredible generosity, and to Cindy Brown, CEO of Boston Duck tours for introducing us to this dynamic and philanthropic community.
