LUBBOCK, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) — The following is a press release from Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Southwest:

RMHC of the Southwest is inviting you to come celebrate Jax, RMHC’s first therapy dog and Chief Cheer Officer, as he retires this August. Jax has dedicated his life to cheering up kids and their families both in the Ronald McDonald House and in the hospitals. He has given countless hugs and kisses to those who needed him and been a very good boy. Jax’s plans are to now be a full-time pet and enjoy his retirement.

Jax’s retirement party will be held at Main Event on Sunday, August 15th from 5pm-8pm. Jax will be there to say goodbye and there will be plush Jax replicas available with a $10 donation to RMHC. While you are there saying goodbye to Jax, Main Event will be hosting a give back event where 20% of your purchases—bowling, games, golf, and food—will be donated to RMHC.

Bring your crew for the last summer blast of the year and say so long to a very good boy!
