CCI video in running for People's Choice award

I received the following in the Sparks Spanish Springs Lions newsletter via Lion Cliff Cooper. The video shows an interesting use of CCI dogs and your viewing it can help it win.

I am writing to you to see if you can help us spread the word about a YouTube video featuring CCI dogs. There is a contest sponsored by the Washington State Bar Association, and one of the videos features two CCI Facility Dogs who work in the King County courthouse in Seattle. We are hoping that this video will get enough views by June 30th to win the People’s Choice award in this contest. This will be great publicity for CCI and, we hope, be a help for their fundraising efforts in the Northwest.

The person who made this video, Cesar Hidalgo-Landeros, is a videographer for the Seattle Police Department and loves the dogs who work in the courthouse.
