Kiss the Cow Fundraising Competition to benefit Firefighter’s wife in need of service dog
Monday, October 14, 2013

 
LEXINGTON, SC - Lexington County Public Safety Director David Kerr and Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts are sponsoring a “Kiss the Cow” fund raiser competition to raise money to help a Lexington County firefighter’s wife, who is in need of assistance. The fund raiser is being conducted in partnership with Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services (PAALS) for Client-in-Waiting Becky Sullivan. Becky is the wife of Jim Sullivan, who is one of Lexington County Public Safety’s longest serving volunteer and career firefighters. Jim also served a stint as a crew member in Lexington County Emergency Medical Services. All together Jim has more than 30 years of combined service to citizens in Lexington County. Becky herself served for a short time as a volunteer firefighter, until multiple sclerosis caused her to no longer be able to serve. She is now wheelchair-bound.

You can vote for whichever department head you wish to see “Kiss the Cow” by going to: http://paals.org/kiss-the-cow-fundraiser-for-becky-sullivan to cast your vote. Whichever agency head has the fewest “votes” will “Kiss the Cow” at the Sheriff’s Department Trail of Treats that will be held at Wildcat Hollow (Ball Park Road – Old Lexington High School Stadium) on Saturday, October 26, 2013, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each vote costs $1, and citizens can vote as many times as they wish. All proceeds from this fund raiser will benefit PAALS. The first $5,000 that is raised will be designated for Becky’s Team Training tuition. Any donations received above $5,000 will go into PAALS’ general fund to further the mission of providing animal assistance to enhance people’s lives.

Please help us assist Jim and Becky Sullivan, who have served this great county for more than 30 years! Vote Today!
