Cooking For the HoundsFundraiser

It's time for one of GALT's fan-favorite events – Cooking for the Hounds at The Mercury! This popular event will be held at The Mercury (northwest quadrant of Preston and Forest). For the Tenth consecutive year, The Mercury’s famed Executive Chef, Chris Ward, is opening his kitchen for a cooking demonstration and sampling of some of his favorite dishes. The ever-changing menu at Chef Ward’s award-winning restaurant in North Dallas features scrumptious new American cuisine with strong French and Mediterranean influences. For the ticket price of $65 the following is included:

  • a full course tasting of gourmet dishes,
  • one drink ticket, with additional drinks available for purchase at the cash bar;
  • and entrance to our special Silent Auction, featuring jewelry, art, spa/restaurant certificates, doggie gifts and more!

For those who want ring-side seats at the cooking bar and counter, we are again offering a limited number of VIP tickets (only seven) for the special price of $110. In addition to the above benefits and premium seating, the VIP tickets also include a special gift from GALT.

It is a constant challenge for GALT to meet the increasing medical and boarding expenses for our greys. Chef Ward -- author of "Restaurant Life: The Culinary Chronicles of Chef Chris Ward" – is a true Friend of GALT who always donates for this annual event. You can join Chef Ward in supporting GALT’s greys by attending and enjoying some of his fabulous food! Chef Ward is designing his custom menu, and it will be posted soon.

The Greyt Non-Event Fundraiser

Join GALT in this fourth annual celebration of roaching on the couch! There are no volunteer shifts to fill, no having to wish you were here, and no driving in the end-of-summer heat! This event is all about what greyhounds do best - being couch potatoes extraordinaire! Your $25 ticket gets you the following:

  • A Guilt-Free Day of Relaxation with the Hounds
  • An event shirt - the shirt is for real! But it will arrive late since we have no volunteers working.

Be sure to send us pictures of your special celebration!

    You don't have to be a golfer to WIN a $1,000 Visa Gift Card! The golf tournament will be kicked off by a golf ball drop.

    Numbered golf balls will be dropped from a helicopter onto a flagged hole. The ball closest to the target wins the gift card. The owner of the ball will be contacted by GALT - need not be present to win. $10 per golf ball, with discounts for multiple balls. See it in action!

    Purchase your ball-drop golf balls HERE!

    How to Help the Hounds

    • Play in the scramble! A fun and exciting way to help - you don't need to be a pro to play or win a prize!
    • Volunteer to help! We need lots of volunteers to run this event. If you don't want to play golf, it's still a great event to volunteer for.
    • Make a direct cash donation. The hounds always need help, and we've recently incurred the cost of two broken leg surgical repairs.
    • Participate in the GOLF BALL DROP!
    • Become a sponsor of the event.
    • Make an auction item or raffle item donation for the event.
    • Spread the word! Do you know someone who would like to play or donate? Tell them about the event.
