Greetings!
  

 

It's time to go outside and round up some chickens!

 

Do you love chicken fingers AND greyhounds? The Raising Cane's at Coit and Campbell in Dallas will donate 15% from every order they receive from someone who mentions GALT during the 5-8pm time window on Wednesday, August 15th. Pick up dinner for the family - the houndies will love you for it!   

 

 Ways to stretch your chicken fingers:

 

Buy extra to feed the office tomorrow!

Buy a meal for each dog!

Get extra meals for the kids' lunches tomorrow!

Buy a meal for each dog!

The more leftovers, the less you have to cook!

Buy a meal for each dog!

Have a chicken finger eating contest in your house!

Buy a meal for each dog!

THE GREYT NON-EVENT
Join GALT in this first 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 - be couch potatoes extraordinaire! Your $25 ticket gets you the following: 
  • A meal that we won't provide - there are three greyt options for you to dream about
  • A raffle ticket for the raffle items we didn't collect
  • An event shirt - the shirt is for real! But it will arrive 2-3 weeks after the event since we have no volunteers working.
  • A warm, fuzzy feeling for helping the hounds!
You can purchase additional raffle tickets for $1 each for those imaginary raffle items.
 
Join us in this unique event of R&R - Relaxing and Roaching!!!
