Welcome to GALT's Annual
February 26, 2011
Each year, hundreds of greyhounds retire from racing careers at tracks all across the country. Some careers end in victory while others are cut short because of a debilitating injury. Regardless, each has the potential to become a champion by finding a home.
Proceeds from the event will be used to fund necessary veterinary procedures and costs associated with transitioning retired racing Greyhounds into permanent homes.
Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, Inc. (GALT) is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit corporation operating in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, throughout Texas and the United States since May 2001. As of December 2010, GALT has assisted over 1850 greyhounds in finding their forever homes.
GALT depends solely on donations for its operating budget of more than $250,000 per year for needs of the greyhounds in its possession.
Spend an evening with the fastest dogs and one of the fastest men on the planet as you participate in a critical mission:
Put on your aviator sunglasses, leather bomber jacket, flight suit, or military memorabilia and head over to the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Dallas Love Field for GALT's 10th Annual Fundraiser Dinner and GALA. In addition to our usual celebrity guests, this year GALT welcomes SR-71 Spy Plane Pilot Colonel (ret) Rich Graham. During dinner, Colonel Graham will talk about his experiences flying America's most secret aircraft at over three times the speed of sound, at 70,000 feet, and directly above some of the most dangerous spots in the world!
A gourmet custom buffet menu will be provided by Two Sisters Catering of Dallas. You will be able to circulate among the aircraft exhibits and silent auction items on display at the museum. During cocktail hour and dinner your wine is complimentary, and throughout the evening a cash bar is available for beer and spirits. All proceeds support the adoption costs and medical needs of these retired athletes.
