"This organization does amazing work in our community," stated Feldt, "and without groups like them, stray animals would immediately be put to sleep instead of being provided with a loving home and family. I would ask the local community to embrace this fund raiser and help support a very worthy cause!"

Samurai Karate Studio teaches a traditional style of Japanese karate to children and adults, beginning at age 3.5 years. The SKS curriculum includes acts of kindness, anger management, Diabetes awareness, environmental self defense and community service.
