GWINNETT GAB: Fund receives G-Braves grant

Fund receives G-Braves grant

LAWRENCEVILLE — The Gwinnett Braves recently announced that the Cody Fund, at the Community Foundation of Northeast Georgia, is the recipient of the G-Braves October grant.

The $1,000 grant will be used to purchase a new police K-9 for the Snellville Police Department.

The Cody Fund was created to support police K-9 units in Gwinnett County. Kathy Gestar, an avid dog lover, attended the Snellville Police Academy in 1999 and was impressed by the service that officers and their K-9’s provide to protect Gwinnett residents.

Moved by the need for additional dogs and equipment, Gestar founded the Cody Fund, named after her beloved Sheltie that passed away in 2008.

Since its inception in 1999, the Cody Found has awarded grants for the purchase and training of K-9 dogs, as well as for their specialized medical care and K-9 unit equipment.
