In-kind donations

Silent auction/door prize donations

Congratulations to Cynthia Wilcox, holder of raffle ticket #114 and winner of the iPad raffle held at the 2011 Have a Heart 'Grey'la. Cynthia's rescued Great Pyrenees, Badger, is looking forward to using the iPad!

Preparations are underway for the fourth annual Have a Heart 'Grey'la, scheduled for Saturday, February 5, 2011, at the Zilker Clubhouse.

The 'Grey'la is one of GPA-CT's largest and most profitable fund raisers, so please mark your calendars now and stash away a little extra spending money for the silent auction. We'll have great wines and desserts to sample, wonderful music and, once again, that great view of Austin.

We'll also be selling raffle tickets at upcoming events for an Apple iPad* that will be given away at the 'Grey'la, so don't despair if Santa doesn't leave one of these nifty-neato gizmos under your tree. You can buy a raffle ticket or two or three for your chance to win your very own iPad!

*Raffle tickets may be purchased for $5 each at any GPA-CT Meet & Greet in the month of January, by emailing Donna Seago at heart4houndz@gmail.com, or at the Have a Heart 'Grey'la (while supplies last). Only 250 raffle tickets will be sold, so don't miss your chance to win an iPad and help the hounds!

Our fund raising goal for the Have a Heart 'Grey'la this year is $10,000, so we're going to need everyone's support, financial and otherwise!

GPA-CT is inviting interested friends, family and community members to attend and to help raise funds to support GPA-CT's mission to find forever homes for retired racing greyhounds.

GPA-CT needs your help to make this a hugely successful fundraiser. Volunteers are needed in the following areas and for the following tasks on the day of the event. If you can volunteer to help with any of these tasks (or if you have questions), please contact Have a Heart 'Grey'la coordinator Donna Seago at heart4houndz@gmail.com.

Hosting Committee: Greet guests upon arrival; pour wine; stock dessert trays; remind guests about bidding on silent auctions

Set-Up, Break-Down and Clean-Up: Set-up tables, chairs, decorations; put out food, drinks; break down tables, chairs; clean up facility.
