Pets 4 Vets benefit dodgeball tournament to be held March 31

Pets 4 Vets, a benefit dodgeball tournament and bake sale to raise money for service dogs for veterans, will be held 1:30–4:30 p.m. March 31 at the University of Maine’s New Balance Field House.

The dodgeball tournament will feature teams of four; the registration fee is $5 per person or $20 per team, which includes local, homemade items from the “wicked good bake sale” table. There also will be a guest speaker.

Proceeds will support SOS: Salute of Service, a Searsport-based organization that provides and trains dogs for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and injuries. The event is sponsored by Maine Business School Corps, UMaine Army ROTC Black Bear Battalion and UMaine Veterans Association.
