The event, open to Pack Expo industry professionals, will feature a performance from musician Kenny Loggins, and all money generated by ticket sales will support the K9s for Warriors charity.

“By donating proceeds to K9s for Warriors, this event will give us a chance to give back to the brave men and women who have made unimaginable sacrifices for all of us.” said Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI.

K9s for Warriors is a charitable organization dedicated to providing service dogs to military troops and veterans suffering from posttraumatic stress as a result of conflicts and war following 9/11. The program includes three weeks’ training and bonding for dogs and veterans at the K9s for Warriors facility in Ponte Vedra, Fla. Over 90 percent of the dogs are obtained through rescue groups.

“K9s for Warriors is a great organization and a great cause,” Yuska added. “PMMI has had the privilege to have worked with the group in the past. We witnessed their dedication to their mission and the good it has done for both the rescued animals and the soldiers and veterans they help.”
