It seemed a natural collaboration. After all, what dog doesn't enjoy a car ride?
At the request of the Florida Chapter of Rolling Thunder car club, Tampa Wax Slingers, a Riverview auto detailing service, organized car shows to raise funds for the Southeastern Guide Dogs Inc., a nonprofit that trains guide dogs for the blind.
According to Tampa Wax Slingers co-owner Jessica Cianfrocca, who posted this announcement on Bloomingdale-Riverview Patch, the shows attracted up to 200 car owners, 100 motorcycling enthusiasts and more than 1,000 visitors.
But the big winner in the collaboration was Southeastern Guide Dogs Inc., which received a $2,000 donation to help raise dogs for veterans with vision problems.
