Thanks to our local leaders for jumping on board and for The Pegasus Foundation for hosting a great educational event on 12/1/15 in Port St. Lucie! Up in the Treasure Coast with some great supporters: State Attorney Dave Aronberg, The Pegasus Foundation, the Spay and Neuter Alliance, and Phil Arkow- head of the National Link Coalition, spreading word of the goals of the South Florida Link Coalition to Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Okeechobee counties!

The launch meeting on 12/2/2015 was a great success! I heard the ideas and concerns of so many dedicated professionals regarding how non-addressed Link issues affect and influence their work. In attendance was the State Attorney, a variety of social service agencies, Animal Care and Control, PBC Victim Services and Public Safety, the Clerks Office, a variety of law enforcement agencies, the Broward State Attorney's Office, the PBC School District, AVDA and other shelters, some dedicated community members, and more! So many in South Florida are willing and ready to be a part of the South Florida Link Coalition. http://www.examiner.com/article/new-coalition-addresses-the-link-between-animal-cruelty-and-domestic-violence?CID=examiner_alerts_article

I want to thank Darbster for hosting an amazing and successful happy hour fundraiser for us! Darbster's generosity and support was overwhelming to me! The food was delicious and flowing, service was top notch, and their extra help to make it all happen smoothly was so much appreciated! Words are not enough to describe how grateful I am and how satisfied our attendees were!
I also want to thank those who were in attendance for your continued dedication and support to this cause: PBC Animal Care & Control, PBC Sheriff's Office, PBC Victim Services, the Human Society of the United States, and more! A special thanks so our awesome State Attorney Dave Aronberg for taking time to show up in enthusiastic support for the South Florida Link Coalition!
We raised close to $1000 in 2 hours thanks to ticket sales, additional donations, and our fun raffle! We could not have done it without our community partners and local businesses who want to give back! Prize winners took home some great stuff. Thank you to Sozo Chiropractic West Palm Beach, Essentials Spa of Palm Beach Gardens, Friends of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, Star Farms LLC, Muvico Parisian 20 & IMAX, Palm Beach Island Cats, Inc, and some creative and generous community members!!!
