Greyhound Adoption League of Texas: Faith, Hope, Charity

The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT) celebrates over a decade of saving greyhound lives on March 3 with the 11th annual Greyt Gala Dinner and Auction.  The annual event will be held at the Hilton Dallas in Southlake Town Square.  Reception begins at 6pm, and dinner starts at 7pm.

Former Dallas Cowboys Charlie Walters, Cliff Harris and Michael Downs, along with Major League Baseball retirees Jack Lazorko, Don Stanhouse, Mike Bascik,  Mike Phillips, John Knox and others join together to raise awareness for GALT mission of “No Grey Turned Away.”  Actor Burton Gilliam, most famously known for his role in Blazing Saddles, will also be in attendance. The annual event features cocktails, dinner, live and silent auction, and the opportunity for guests to mingle with local talents and celebrity athletes.

This year’s theme Faith, Hope, and Charity, honors three of the many abused injured greyhounds cared for by GALT over the past several years; Faith, a female missing her right ear, was removed from a hoarder (along with her 8 puppies); Hope, a stray discovered cowering under a house near a busy highway on a freezing morning after suffering for months in the open without adequate food; and, Charity, found severely underweight at only 45 pounds due to starvation.

Tickets are $125 per person or $100 per person with the purchase of two or more tickets at the same time. For over ten years, (GALT) has been the organization of choice for retired greyhounds requiring adoption services as well as the adoption organization of last resort for many injured, abused, and neglected Greyhounds.  For more information go to http://www.galtx.org/ or call John McQuade at 214-215-8216.
