Southeastern Guide Dogs
At New Legacy, we know the joy and comfort an animal can bring our lives. We support Southeastern Guide Dogs because they are committed to improving the lives of those with vision loss & PTSD by providing them with a new best friend who provides unconditional love and steady leadership in uncertain situations.
Each pup is trained to the highest degree and are provided to their service companion at no cost. SEGD can help the visually impaired, those who are suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder and other significant challenges by providing them with the life-changing opportunity of living life with the world’s top-trained guide dogs by their side. For a person who can’t wait to know the joy of independence, their dogs provide increased mobility, unconditional love, and freedom.
New Legacy Homes will continue to support SEGD’s mission to provide trusted service companions helps create a new legacy of confidence, freedom & independence in lives every day.
Raise a Glass, Change a Life - 2019
New Legacy Homes Family Foundation Design Center Event of 2019, Raise a Glass, Change a Life, supported our community partner, Southeastern Guide Dogs. Guide & Ambassador Dogs were on sight for the event, greeting guests upon arrival and hanging around for hugs throughout the night. The pups stole the show, delighting guests with their steadfast dedication & warm personality.
Guests were treated to a private art lesson, gourmet tapas, and an indulgent wine tasting as well as an exclusive personal experience with our community partner. Surpassing our expectations, we proudly announced that in a single, intimate event, that we were able to raise $5,000 for SEGD.
Golf Classic - 2020
New Legacy Family Foundation held its Inaugural New Legacy Golf Classic in support of the Southeastern Guide Dogs organization. New Legacy is committed to SEGD because of what they do for the comfort and support their dogs provide Veterans and Gold Star families.
Golfers were welcomed upon arrival to Carrollwood Country Club by the New Legacy Team and our furry friends from Southeastern Guide Dogs. Many puppy raisers, recipients and ambassadors took time to join us in spreading the message of how service dogs can change lives.
Welcoming reception featured award winning BBQ by Deviled Pig, shopping in the complimentary player gift store & Event Golf Towel and a shotgun start. On course entertainment was abundant, featuring 7 contests including Longest Drive, Team Putting Contest, Hole in One for a 2020 GMC Sierra lease, and Air Launcher. The 19th hole featured happy hour & dinner.
Our evening closed with a compelling testimony by our guest speaker, Morgan Watt and his companion, Foley.
When Morgan Watt worked on explosive detection as an Air Force K-9 handler and security police first responder, instant reaction and hyper vigilance were normal. Searching an Okinawan jungle, working with the Secret Service on presidential detail, or securing foreign dignitary events in New York City all fell under his watchful eye.
Later as a civilian pilot, Morgan's hyper-awareness served him well. But when debilitating migraines and balance issues ended that career, anxiety and depression triggered underlying PTSD from years of stress and chronic pain.
While finding his way again, Morgan volunteered at Southeastern Guide Dogs, seeing all the ways Southeastern, and their dogs, were helping veterans. Today, Morgan feels a new sense of hope since meeting a calm yellow goldador named Foley, his service dog.
We can’t wait to help more deserving individuals through the mission of SEGD. The inaugural New Legacy Golf Classic raised $25,000 in support of Southeastern Guide Dogs! Thank you to all who joined us on January 20th & sponsored this event!
