On May 9, Leader Dogs for the Blind held a business breakfast for local community leaders and business professionals to celebrate their continued support over the past 75 years.

The morning included remarks from Bryan Barnett, Mayor of Rochester Hills and L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County Executive. They shared messages on the topics of a city and a community of inspiration. Leader Dog CEO Sue Daniels presented awards to three local business leaders who have been staunch Leader Dog supporters for many years—Bill Fox (Bill Fox Chevrolet), Russ Shelton (Shelton Buick GMC) and the late Roy Rewold (Frank Rewold and Son, Inc.).

LDB Client Jim Platzer and Brad McKenna, LDB director of corporate relations, shared examples of how Leader Dog has helped companies engage their employees and customers to grow their corporate citizenship programs.
