The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation of Westminster received two awards for its participation in Colorado Gives Day 2013, the Community First Foundation announced earlier this month.

Camp Bow Wow accepted a special $5,000 award from Colorado Public Television Channel 12 which will design a media campaign. The award is designed to help small nonprofits with limited budgets to help market their services.

The Camp Bow Wow Foundation gained national recognition when it sent two of its Freedom Service therapy dogs to Newtown, Conn., to aid in the community’s recovery after a mass shooting at its elementary school.

It also was one of 10 nonprofits to receive $1,000 each from a trivia contest conducted during the December online fundraising event.

Other nonprofits receiving $1,000 included: the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance, Divine Feline, Feeding Our Community Ourselves (FOCO Café), Muscular Dystrophy Association of Denver, Prairies Wildlife Research, Rifle Animal Shelter, Roundup Fellowship, Shining Stars Foundation and Smart-Girl, Inc.

Eighteen nonprofits each received $5,000 Luck-of-the-Draw cash prizes. They were: the American Red Cross, the Longs Peak Council of the Boy Scouts of America, Canine Companions for Independence, Clean Energy Action, Colorado Youth at Risk, Craig Hospital Foundation, Divine Feline, Energy Outlook Colorado, One Colorado Education Fund, Pandas International, Project 1.27, Project Angel Heart, Rocky Mountain Multiple Sclerosis Center, Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, TRU Community Care, Urban Peak Denver, Vail Valley Salvation Army and YMCA of Metropolitan Denver.
