To the cheers of 40,000 sports fans, GDB's Planned Giving Associate Director Bob Sonnenberg with his black Lab Niño threw out the first pitch at a recent Giant's baseball game in AT&T Park in San Francisco. Watch the video...
Although he called it "Blind luck," Bob, who lost much of his sight suddenly seven years ago, threw a strike to Giant's pitcher Sergio Romo.
Niño, true to his good training, did not go after the ball ("Good boy!"). He later developed a friendship with Giant's mascot Lou Seal.
What a great way to kick off National Guide Dog Month and raise awareness for GDB's mission! How are you making new friends for GDB?
