What do you call a parade of greyhounds?
The Tucson Downtown Parade of Lights happens this Saturday, Dec. 13. SA Greys’ float is a herd (we hope) of lighted greyhounds. We need many extroverted greyhounds to make an impact. C’mon down to 15th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue (in Armory Park) and take your dog for a walk. Admit it, you need the exercise. Let’s show off our hounds to thousands of people. Also walkers without greyhounds are needed. Dogs should be wearing coats and wrapped with battery operated lights. Read the previous blog for specifics then contact Renee to be updated. Let’s put our best paws forward!
|And Toby makes three|
Last month volunteer Reness Nasca-Vaughn and Dancers Anonymous chose SA Greys as the fundraising recipient for their Leaps for Lives event held at Reid Park. The event raised $715.50! SA Greys truly appreciates all their hard work and talent in making the event a success. Pictured are Reness and husband Luke and their newly adopted greyhound mix, Toby.
If your organization, service group, book group, scout troop, church group would like to host a fundraiser to benefit the hounds, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to Lizzie Mead and Alphagraphics

SA Greys has a table at this Home Show. We will need many greyhounds (not just fosters) to participate. If you have never done a meet & greet, here’s your opportunity to be part of the fun. Thousands of people from all walks of life come to the Home Show. Every couch potato will have his or her day at the Home Show. Volunteers without dogs are also needed.
