Jackpot!! GRRR has come of age and is now 21! This past year, GRRR has been busy at work rescuing Turkey Dogs, one of whom is named Jackpot. There is a special sense of accomplishment and you can hit the jackpot by attending this year’s gala on June 17th.

Our unique 2017 event will celebrate our 21st anniversary. Our attendees will meet and hear from Yasemin Baban from Istanbul, Turkey. Yasemin has been responsible for saving the lives of nearly 1000 Golden Retrievers from the forest, streets and shelters of Istanbul. It is Yasemin and her small volunteer team that work with the Turkish shelters and animal control to rescue Golden Retrievers and get them ready and on a plane to their US destination.There would be no national “Operation Turkey Dog” in the US without Yasemin and her team.

At the Gala on June 17th, you'll meet and hear from Yasemin while you enjoy:

• Full bar

• Food tasting stations featuring substantial options, including a carving station.

• Silent and live auctions, including items such as dog training, spa treatments, golf packages, vacation get-aways and more. 

 Enthusiastic tail wags from greeters along the red carpet- Turkey dogs and Golden Angels (and their new parents).

There will be sit-down table seating available (see below if you would like to reserve an entire table for 8).

Cocktail or business casual attire. Free parking at the event- be sure to get your parking voucher before you leave.

This is our biggest fundraising effort of the year. Taking care of the pups that find their way to GRRR and managing Phoebe’s Place are both tremendous responsibilities. Of course, the cost of doing this is very high. We look to you—GRRR’s faithful supporters—to buy tickets and spread the word for this special evening and to have a "ball" yourself. By doing so, you are helping provide for the precious Goldens in our care.

On behalf of the Goldens we all love, thank you for your support of GRRR’s Jackpot Gala. We’ll see you there!

Please send an email to with the following information: names of all of your attendees and whether they have any dietary restrictions, your email, mailing address and phone number. This will help us provide you with registration packets. Thank you!
