Community Bank of Florida employee Karen Houtz is a dedicated animal lover. For years she has enjoyed helping rescued animals find adoptive families. It was no surprise to other Community Bank employees when she asked them to join her at the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal’s 19th Annual Pets on Parade 5K and walkathon held at Lake Hollingsworth in Lakeland. In addition to sponsoring the event and participating as an event vendor, employees enjoyed talking to dog lovers, watching the canine costume and talent contests and raffling off a few doggone good Community Bank baskets. It was a great event; raising over $121,000 for the SPCA.
