- Join k9 connection Honorary Patron Jane Lynch as she kicks off the k9 Game Night!
Jane Lynch, the acclaimed actress, singer and comedian (GLEE), joined k9 connection as an Honorary Patron in June 2015, together with the founding Patron, Roger Daltrey, rock star and philanthropist, and Rebecca Rothstein, noted Los Angeles-based financial advisor.
Said Jane, “The folks at k9 sent me their promotional film about the great work of this organization, with both at risk teens and shelter dogs; they had me at the halfway mark in the film and I was crying at the end. This brings together two things I truly love, young people and dogs. I am so excited to become involved.”
- Join the VIP table for a lesson with Vince Lozano
Vince Lozano is an actor/producer and sport enthusiast, as well as a WPT poker player, who is perhaps best known for his role as Jacoby in the 2003 blockbuster hit, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Lozano was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, where he excelled in sports from baseball, basketball, football and boxing. There was no sport that he thought he could not play. In his spare time, he works with several charities including Penny Lane, Pirates for Children, MDA and now k9 connection. A die-hard fan of the Browns and Indians, Vince is passionate about his work and believes in getting the most out of life.
