EVENT TICKETS

FACEBOOK EVENT

Ginny the Greyhound ran away February 15th and was not captured until February 19th. When a Greyhound gets loose, we must rely on the community for help with sightings. The response was overwhelming, and with the support of our community neighborhoods, The Greyhound Adoption of Ohio, and Ramona Hartleben's JJ's Ruff Roads animal rescue, we were able to capture Ginny before something bad happened. Of course we were relieved and elated to get Ginny back,but the support from the community of Canton, Ohio and surrounding areas has really touched us and made an imprint on us forever.

John and I would like to give back to the community by creating a day of celebration and fundraising. Nathan's Patio Bar and Grill will host a Spaghetti Dinner for us. IT WILL BE SERVED BUFFET STYLE...INCLUDED IS MEAT SAUCE, OR MARINARA/ SALAD/ GARLIC BREAD. DONATED DESSERT TABLE TOO! By May the "Patio" will be open too! Live music will be out on the patio!

We will do a Reverse Raffle during dinner; some incremental cash prizes, and $1200 grand prize! (MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN) 

We will also have a Silent Auction that afternoon! We will keep you posted on some of the awesome baskets!

Tentative schedule for that afternoon:

1:00pm-registration, get seats, buy some great things for a good cause! Silent Auction opens bidding
2pm-4pm Spaghetti Buffet Open
3pm-Reverse Raffle starts, must be present to win
4pm-Silent Auction Ends
5pm-Conclusion, but stay and eat, drink and be merry!
So far some vendors that will be there are: Crown Collars, Pinetree Primitives and Rustic Riches.
