The Mercury - Cooking For the Hounds Fundraiser

It's time for one of GALT's fan favorite events – "Cooking for the Hounds" at The Mercury

For the ninth 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.

We recommend that you purchase your tickets NOW, because this event always sells out! Your $60 ticket includes:

Menu:

  • Fried Risotto with crisped sweetbreads and truffle sauce
  • Warm ricotta and Texas tomato salad
  • Braised short rib with celery root purée
  • Chocolate icebox pie
  • Madeleines and Palmiers

Your $60 entry fee includes the following:

  • Tasting portions of several courses, including mouth-watering appetizers, main dishes and desserts
  • One drink ticket, with additional drinks available for purchase at the cash bar
  • 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 - seven tickets - for the special price of $100. In addition to the above benefits and premium seating, the VIP tickets also include a special gift from GALT. VIP TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT!

It is a constant struggle for GALT to meet the increasing medical and boarding expenses for our greyhounds. 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 greyhounds by attending and enjoying some of his fabulous food!

The Greyt Non-Event Fundraiser

Join GALT in the third 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 meal that we won't provide
  • A raffle ticket for the raffle items we didn't collect
  • An event shirt - the shirt is for real! But it will arrive late since we have no volunteers working.

Join us in this unique event of R&R - Relaxing and Roaching!!!

Stay tuned for the unveiling of the 2014 T-shirt design!

Strut Your Mutt Fundraiser

It's that time of year again - when we strut our stuff for the GALT greyhounds. The best part is that you can strut anywhere - in your neighborhood, at the gym or even by just kicking back on your couch if that is your preferred style. You don't need a greyhound to strut; you don't even need a dog!

The Central Texas GALT representatives will be stepping out this year in Austin on September 13th in the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt Walk and need our support. If you're interested in participating in the actual walk in Austin, please contact us for more details. We can, of course, be with them in spirit, but we can also show our support no matter where we are as they put their best feet forward for the GALT greys!

Your generous support of Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, Inc. in past years has enabled us to help many greyhounds in need. In the last fiscal year, we accepted 149 hounds into our program. This included 11 with broken legs; a stray momma saluki/greyhound mix with 7 newborn puppies; and notably, 3 stray male greyhound pups tied together with shoestrings. During this same timeframe, GALT found loving homes for 153 hounds!

Please join us for this fun-filled event either by registering for our team to raise funds or by donating to one of our existing team members. Your donation is tax-deductible and 100% of the money raised will go to help GALT's greyhounds. GALT's 200 members are proud to live our motto, No Grey Turned Away™, each and every day. Please support GALT's 2014 Strut Your Mutt efforts!

To donate via CASH or CHECK instead of CREDIT CARD, please make the check out to Greyhound Adoption League of Texas or enclose a note with the cash and send to:

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.
  • 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.
