On February 24, 2013, “Marchon”, a Guide Dog puppy now fully grown, graduated from the Guide Dog Foundation campus, in Smithtown, New York.
The puppy was named “Marchon” to show the Guide Dog Foundation’s appreciation to Marchon and our accounts for their support at the Vision Expo East and West shows, which has generated over $100,000 in contributions.
The proud pup is a female black lab golden cross and was partnered upon graduation with Lisa Newton. Lisa is a talented singer and performed at the graduation. “Marchon” is Lisa’s fourth dog from Guide Dog Foundation. Her previous dog has retired and is now a companion dog to Lisa’s friend.
Lisa Newton and “Marchon” have already started touring as a team. They recently visited with Mrs. Carrol’s fourth grade class at JFK Elementary in Jamesburg, New Jersey.
Marchon will once again be raising money for the Guide Dog Foundation at Vision Expo East 2013. Stop by the Marchon booth to get more details.
