A Golden Gala – Derby Days

May 1st – May 8th 2021

Please join us for our silent “virtual” auction, “Derby Days”, coinciding with the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 1st.

As we wait at the gates in anticipation of bidding on fabulous auction items, pour yourself a Mint Julep, find yourself a derby hat and nosh on some southern fare.

We will begin the race with a week-long opportunity to view and bid on silent auction items, along with a “Run for the Goldens” raffle. A maximum of 200 raffle tickets will be offered at $100 per ticket where a minimum $2,500 purse awaits, no matter how many tickets are sold. If we sell over a hundred tickets, fifty percent of the ticket price will be added to the winnings, resulting in a grand prize of $7,500 if all 200 tickets are sold.

Be sure to tune in to our “Cause for the Paws” video, where we highlight two very special rescues that were considered long shots, but overcame the odds to become winners.

An online program book will feature our sponsors, advertisers, cash donors and stories from our fosters and adopters.

Mark your calendars for this special event and be part of our Golden Gala-Derby Days.  Your participation and donations will enable us to continue to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome the goldens in our care.

We need your help.  Won’t you please consider a donation for our silent auction?
