On January 11, 2018 the St. Louis Italian Open presented Support Dogs, Inc. with a $60,000 check. The funds for the organization were raised as part of the Fund-A-Need, at the Italian Open’s dinner gala in August of 2017.

Support Dogs, Inc. is a national non-profit organization that offers dignity, hope, and independence by providing highly skilled service dogs to individuals with disabilities and uniquely trained therapy dogs to serve the community.

The mission of Support Dogs, Inc closely aligns with the mission of the Italian Open; to give all funds raised through your generosity to charities supporting less fortunate children in St. Louis.

The St. Louis Italian Open is proud to support an organization that makes a difference in the lives of children who need our help the most. Thank you, Support Dogs, Inc for all that you do for our community.
