4th Annual Maggie’s Open Golf Tournament and Silent Auction
Monday, October 9, 2017
Diabetes Alert Dogs make great companions, but more importantly they have the potential to save their owner’s life. These trained canines can identify and alert patients with Type 1 Diabetes that their blood sugar is falling and in extreme cases take measures into their own paws and alert 911.
NCS employee, Jon Cheverere knows first-hand the lifesaving role his Diabetic Alert Dog, Maggie plays in his life. Maggie is with Jon 24/7 and has become just as much a part of the NCS team now as her owner.
Realizing the life-saving companionship Maggie offers Jon, NCS wants to do the same for others. Partnering with Thistle Ridge Terriers, NCS will host a golf tournament this fall to raise money to cover the cost of the service dogs for others in need.
