Sumter County-- Dog handlers and donors turned out Friday to view the 5th annual Bird-in-Hand Stock Dog Trials to benefit Americus Hospice.
Lou and Mac both want to be this year's top dog at the trials. However, this stock dog trials winner is really Americus and Sumter County Hospice.
"It has meant a great deal to our hospice, all of the money raised from this project will go toward patient care and stay in Sumter County," said Director Anne Speer.
As dog handlers, and on-lookers wait to see who achieves the coveted revolving cup for best dog, hospice workers in Americus have a dream of a full cup of donations. "Our plans now for the future is for an inpatient hospice facility, and the money being raised by bird in hand will go towards that facility," Speer said.
The last five year's worth of donations from this event started with just a simple idea says founder Bruce Johnson. "I only had an idea, but to make it such a success are through the volunteers who run dogs and the people who watch dogs. I feel good in that I know that the funds raised are going for the most worthy cause."
Even with one more day of activities left Saturday, over $34,000 has already been raised. Proving once again bird in hand is a helping hand.
