Sarah Jayne Orton Memorial Walk - 2014

Last year on Saturday May 17, 2014 we held the first annual Sarah Jayne Orton Memorial Walk at the Sandymount Park located in Finksburg, Maryland. Golf Zoo help sponsor the event. We raised close to $4,000 for the Baltimore Humane Society. It was a beautiful day with many people and their dogs and rainbow colors everywhere you looked. The Baltimore Humane Society had an information table set up and dogs up for adoption. There was also a basket raffle which included items for kids, pool fun, cooking, pet themed baskets, etc.

We would like to thank all of our family and friends who help put the event together the morning of the walk: Ellen Bowersox, Meghan Bowersox, Ethel Orton, Robin Applegarth, Ashley Applegarth, Macie Maybury, Vonnie Ellis, Brooke and Mike Phayre, Heather and Heidi Sedlacek, Bonnie and Roy Mathews, Karen and Cal Mathews.
