Port Washington, NY (May 16, 2008) – Two-time NASCAR champion Greg Biffle will be honored by North Shore Animal League America for his work on behalf of homeless animals in America. Along with his wife Nicole, the racing superstar will accept the Animal League’s Just One Award at the Seventh Annual Lewyt Humane Awards Luncheon, Wednesday, June 11, 2008 at the Garden City Hotel, Garden City, NY.
The Just One Award is conferred on individuals whose efforts help save the lives of innocent pets. The Biffles, through the work of the Greg Biffle Foundation, are being recognized for their ongoing support of life-saving animal rescues and spay neuter initiatives, as well as for funding puppy transports from southern states to the Animal League shelter in Port Washington, the worlds largest no-kill facility. The couple established the foundation to create awareness and serve as an advocate to improve the well-being of animals.
Proceeds of the luncheon, named in honor of Animal League founders the late Alex Lewyt, and his wife Elisabeth Lewyt, Chairperson of the Board of Directors, benefit North Shore Animal League America’s mission to rescue, nurture and adopt more than 20,000 homeless animals annually.
