ABOUT GREYHOUND GATHERING

WHEN: May 19 – 21, 2017

WHO:
Lovers of greyhounds and sight hounds from around the world come to Greyhound Gathering – Kanab. Sponsored in 2017 by   Kane Country Travel Council, Kanab City, Greyhound Gang, Get Up & Go, La Estancia, Canyons Collections, Galgos Jubilados and Best Friends.

WHAT:
This 3 plus-day celebration and FUNdraising event features Blur of Fur, Costume Parade, Dancing with Dogs, Old Hollywood Movie Set Tour, Speakers, Yappy Hour,  Best Friends Tours, Auctions, Food, Fun and Frolic, Reception at La Estancia Dog Park, Art Show,  Auctions, Fantastic Meals and Artisans – including Sarah Snavely.

The first set of donations given from 2016 FUNdraising are these. I anticipate being able to donate more, but I won’t have final numbers until all bills are in, and the accountant reconciles. Greyhound Gang (because of your and our sponsors’ generosity) so far has given out $20,000 in donations, split among these deserving 501c3s.

  • Almost Home for Hounds (Greyhound Topia also donated $800 to AHH from their jewelry sales that weekend, plus $100 to Fast Friends and GreySave. Thank YOU!)
  • Scooby Medina
  • 112 Carlota Galgos
