2015 FastFriends.org Greyhound Picnic in the Park

2015-fastfriends-org-picnic (1)What do you get when you mix great weather, fun, games, Greyhounds and humans? The answer is the FastFriends.org Picnic at Hacienda Park. This year it was held on June 13th in La Habra Heights.

The annual picnic is an event to raise money that goes directly to support ex-racing Greyhound adoption and is always a not-to-be-missed event for both humans and hounds alike.

Vendors were there to support the event and to provide picnic-goers with a chance to add to their hound-related items. It is wonderful to see the support and commitment of the vendors each year and their time and dedication is much appreciated.

In addition to the vendors, there was a silent auction with many splendid greyhound items and a raffle. All items are graciously donated for both the auction and raffle.

The picnic kicked off with the Blessing of the Hounds. It opened with a remembrance of dogs past and then at least 20 hounds on site were blessed. Read more

Building second chances for families in need

Titan Public Relations teamed up with Habitat for Humanity, Saturday to help build houses for low-income families that either live or work in Orange County.

The clock struck 7:30 a.m. on a gloomy Saturday morning, as the sun hid behind an overcast sky. The sound of heavy work boots made their way into a dirt-laden housing complex as six Cal State Fullerton students hurried to sign in before the start of a day filled with volunteer work.

“I thought it was a really good opportunity because it’s so close to Cal State Fullerton, so I feel like this would have the most immediate effects in our community,“ said Arianne Antonio, outreach director for Titan PR.

Habitat for Humanity—a nonprofit organization that brings people together to build homes—gathered volunteers from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at its La Habra location to help with the process of turning a house into a home for families in need.

“(Habitat) gives these families the chance to have affordable housing where otherwise they may be living in their car,” said Kandy Killingsworth, a Habitat for Humanity site supervisor assistant for the La Habra site. “They have money but they just don’t have enough money to pay what the outstanding rents are around here.” Read more
