A motorcycle rally by the Suffolk County Probation Officers Association raised $1,400 last month for a national guide dog foundation that serves disabled veterans and active duty service members.
The rally started outside the association’s building in Patchogue on April 20 and ended at The Maples restaurant in Manorville. The event featured lunch for the riders, live music and door prizes, officials said.
The money raised through the rally went to the America’s VetDogs — Veteran’s K-9 Corps, a nonprofit founded by the Guide Dog Foundation. The group helps veterans by providing assistance dogs and training at no cost to help disabled veterans get the support they need, according to the group’s website.
