VESTAL, NY (PRWEB) July 26, 2016
Major employee-owned furniture store Olum's recently gave back to the community on June 9 with their 15th Annual Vendor Appreciation Day golfing event, which successfully raised over $7,000 toward the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office K9 Unit.
Event proceeds offered to the sheriff's office will be used to add a new canine member to the team, a German Shepherd they plan to name "Olum."
Olum's 15th Annual Vendor Appreciation Day event was held at Willowbrook Golf Course in Courtland, New York. Vendors, as well as partners and employees of Olum's, spent the day enjoying golf and great food while raising funds for Onondaga County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit, this year's recipient of all proceeds collected.
"I'm very satisfied with the turn-out and generous contributions made by those who were a part this year's event," Olum's President Keith Solomon stated. Solomon, who presented the check of $7,100 to Onondaga County's Sheriff Gene Conway on July 8, added that he's happy to know that partners and members of his company can come together to positively impact a supportive community.
The Onondaga County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit has four teams, each consisting of a canine partner for a deputy. The rookie team member of the K-9 unit will be trained to perform narcotics and explosives detection, criminal searches, searches for missing persons, providing protection and other various tasks while on duty with their human partners.
