3rd Justin Pashley PTSD Event

$2,500 goal

Campaign created 10 months ago
Justin Pashley was a member of the Pennsylvania National Guard, serving his country since 2001 when he enlisted during his senior year of high school after seeing the devastating effects September 11th had on our country. He was an Infantry Scout and highly trained in combat. Justin completed tours in Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq. Unfortunately nothing could prepare him for what he experienced during his time in the military. He was suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and after struggling for many years, Justin, at the age of 31, lost his battle on May 15, 2014. We have realized the very few resources that are available for our service men and women suffering from PTSD. Justin loved to help people, it didn’t matter what the need was, if you needed help, he was there. He LOVED animals, especially dogs. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Canine Partners for Life, located in Cochranville, PA!

Canine Partners for Life (CPL), a non-profit organization, has been dedicated to training service dogs, home companion dogs, residential companion dogs, and courthouse companion dogs to assist individuals who have a wide range of physical and cognitive disabilities. CPL is an accredited member of Assistance Dogs International and has placed more than 650 dogs in 45 states. Each dog is taken through a two-year, comprehensive and customized training program to meet the specific needs of its human partner. The total cost to raise, train, place, and provide lifetime support for each CPL dog is estimated to be in excess $30,000 per dog. I invite you to find out more about the life-changing work that canine partners are doing by visiting www.k94life.org.

Tickets for the event will be $40.00. Cash bar will be available. Robert Ryan Catering will be serving an amazing buffet dinner, starting off with a garden salad with cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers and toasted garlic croutons and a carousel of dressings. Entrées include rosemary, lemon and roasted garlic marinated chicken with a white wine, caper and fresh herb sauce, slow simmered beef burgundy with shiitake and domestic mushrooms, pearl onion and fresh rosemary, roasted fillet of Atlantic salmon with a Dijon mustard and brandy cream sauce. Sides include smashed red bliss potatoes with sour cream and parmesan cheese, green beans with roasted garlic herb butter and toasted almonds, baked dinner rolls and whipped Butter.

We've learned that no matter what, we will NEVER quit on those who NEVER quit on us! PTSD has taught us that us that everyone needs a friend, sometimes it’s a person and sometimes its man’s best friend. So now, we go to work, helping both, in Justin’s honor. #istandforjustin #neverquit
