Local Organization Is Honored with National Dog Grooming Industry Award
Groomers for Groomers Wins Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Grooming Industry
LAS VEGAS –
The 27th Annual Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards, the “Oscars” of the competitive dog grooming industry, were recently held at the SuperZoo pet industry trade show in Las Vegas. Members of the industry gathered to honor the most prestigious groomers, contest judges and pet salons of the year. Among the winners was locally-based Groomers for Groomers Fund, which was presented with the David G. Salzberg Award for outstanding contributions to the grooming industry.
Groomers for Groomers Fund was established in Moore, Oklahoma May of 2013 after a hurricane devastated many businesses. It is an organization where groomers can help other groomers and industry members by donating cash or items so that they can be auctioned off in order to help groomers in need. They have raised over $22,000 in two years to help groomers in need due to medical reasons, floods, or fires.
“The David G. Salzberg Award is presented annually to an organization that contributes most significantly to the advancement of the grooming industry,” said Barbara Denzer, Vice President of Cardinal Pet Care, a major manufacturer of pet products and sponsor of the Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards. “Groomers for Groomers has helped many groomers in need, and because of their many contributions we are happy to present them with the David G. Salzberg Award.”
The Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards were founded in 1988 by Cardinal Pet Care President and CEO Tony de Vos and Shirlee Kalstone, then owner of the International Intergroom trade show for competitive grooming, for the purpose of establishing standards of grooming excellence and recognizing professional skills in the competitive grooming industry. Since the beginning, the Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards have been considered one of the highest honors in the pet grooming industry, annually presenting awards for outstanding achievement in several different grooming categories.
