September is National Service Dog Month and the K9 Unit of the Manitowoc Police Department has created a spectacular month-long fundraising event to coincide with it. The initiative is called “DINE FORE/4 The K9!”  MTPD has partnered with Autumn Ridge Golf Course, CNC Links and Seven Lakes Golf Course for a Labor Day weekend of golf!!  So let’s swing into action on one, two or all three golf courses over the weekend and let you pick your tee time!!  Remember what happens on the golf course, stays on the golf course!!  We are here to provide your daily dose of “iron” for a good cause!

If the golf is not your thing, don’t worry we have you covered!!  From Sept. 3rd to Sept. 30th we have 28 participating local restaurants throughout Manitowoc County, where they will be sponsoring a specific day --- one restaurant per day --- and donating a percentage of that day’s total receipts back to the Manitowoc Police Department K9 Unit.  Pretty simple and it is simply a delicious event.  No coupons or vouchers are needed.  We just need you to participate at each of the restaurants by satisfying your craving for some of the area’s finest food. 

Most police department K9 Units are largely funded in large part with grants and private donations and that is why this fundraiser is so important to us. Our fundraising allows us to maintain a multi-unit K9 team and to cover daily/operating costs of the program.  These funds cover specialized veterinary care for the K9’s, police vehicles, necessary equipment for the K9 Units, training and certifications that are necessary to maintain the effectiveness of the teams and other miscellaneous expenses to support the program. 

Thanks for taking the time to learn about our fundraiser and our K9 Unit!  Hope to see you out there in September FORE a good time as helping us out as never been so scrumptious!  Bon Appetit!!

 2019 Labor Day Golf Weekend!
