Wags to Riches is the GSRNC’s huge annual fundraising PARTY and boy, is it FUN! But why is Wags to Riches such an important event for GSRNC? Well, it’s a great way for volunteers, supporters, and adopters to meet each other & get (re)acquainted with the organization. It helps all the volunteers recharge their batteries so they can keep on making time for our GSDs. And it’s also a time to learn something new, from watching the cool K-9 demonstrations to talking to the on-site GSD trainer. Finally, it’s a way to increase and maintain our visibility in the community.
But the biggest reason? MONEY. It costs a lot of money to rescue GSDs. Wags to Riches is our big money-maker, but not through the admission cost – that only covers the cost of each guest’s meal & rental of the party space. The real money is made through a silent auction, grand raffle, bag raffle, and beverage sales.
You can imagine that with all those elements it takes a big, committed team to make it all happen!
