Giving Back to Shawn Leonard

Help after major heart surgery.

A longtime hockey player in several local leagues, Shawn has recently gone through major heart surgery, but now is on the road to recovery. He hopes to play again by the summer of 2013, and we’ll happily welcome him back.

This season, Dawg Nation has become partners with the new team in town, the minor league Denver Cutthroats. A special night was set aside in December when the Cutthroats were playing, and a portion of all tickets that were sold by our organization and friends of Shawn were put in a special fund. Between those ticket sales, and a matching grant from Dawg Nation, we were able to present Shawn with a check for over $6600.
