A Golden Gala – Mardi Gras scheduled for May 16th, 2020 has been cancelled and replaced by a virtual event. In light of the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic the Board made the tough decision to cancel our 2020 event. As you know this is our largest fundraiser of the year and this will be a substantial loss for As Good as Gold, but your safety and health are most important to us.

If you were going to become a sponsor or purchase tickets please consider making a donation to help support us in our mission to rescue goldens and golden mixes in need. Please go to gold20.givesmart.com or mail your donation to our address noted below.

For those of you who have purchased tickets we will reimburse you. If you prefer to make your purchase a donation instead, please let us know at events@asgoodasgold.org. We will be happy to send you a donation receipt.

However, all is not lost. We will still have the Big Dog Raffle. We are sure you will be ready for a getaway once life gets back to normal!  Buy your Big Dog Ticket for a 1 in 100 chance to win your choice of five fabulous trips: https://www.asgoodasgold.org/big-dog-raffle-tickets/

We will also be having an online virtual auction with time-sensitive auction items with expiration dates or event dates as well as items that can easily be shipped. These include gift cards, Disney Fast Pass tickets, Cubs tickets, Bears tickets, museum tickets and more. We hope you will join us virtually for this event and have some fun bidding!

We want you to know how much we appreciate your support, and we are looking forward to seeing all of you at next year’s gala.
