The Mercury is Cooking for the Hounds

Bid in the silent auction for artwork, spa and restaurant gift certificates, dog services, custom jewelry and more.
Cost is $60 for per person. Coveted VIP seats (only seven available) get a ring-side seat at Chef Ward’s cooking bar ($100) and a special gift from GALT.
Serving from a changing menu, Chef Ward uses influences from French and Mediterranean cooking to present award winning new American cuisine. The Mercury evokes both a sophisticated setting and a casual neighborhood atmosphere, offering a unique dining experience.
GALT is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit all-volunteer group dedicated to placing all greyhounds primarily those that competed and trained for racing and sight hounds into loving homes. GALT facilitates the adoption of greyhounds by providing kennel services and foster homes along with their medical needs, including spay and neuter, assisting them in the transition from track-life to home-life, and educating the public about why the greyhound has been a favored companion dog for more than 4,000 years.
