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!

The first stand (#2) serves a variety of foods, drinks, and beer. The second stand (9-A) will be serving craft beer, 21 and up only, please! Find out more about the show itself here: Alliance Air Show.

North Texas Giving Day Fundraiser

GALT is participating in North Texas Giving Day, an online giving event that provides nonprofits the opportunity to gain exposure to new donors and for people in North Texas to come together to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits. (The link will be posted at 6:00 am to kick off NTGD!)

Here's the really exciting part: Every gift made on September 17th helps our chances of winning prizes given throughout the day ranging from $500 to $10,000! With over 60 total prizes being awarded throughout the day, our chances to maximize your gift are great!

In just five years, North Texas Giving Day has pumped more that $60 million into the North Texas community.

Strut Your Mutt Fundraiser

It's that time of year again - when we strut our stuff for the GALT greys! 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! Please join us for this fun-filled event either by registering for our team to raise funds or by donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax-deductible, and all the money raised goes to GALT! If you are interested in participating in the walk itself in Austin, please contact Rita Wulke for more information.

    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.
