As part of their ongoing fund raising efforts, MGAP (Maritime Greyhound Adoption Program) is selling tickets for a brand new ThinkPad laptop. I told Mum that I would take a book of tickets and do what I could to sell some of them. It looks like a decent laptop, so I’ll be picking up a couple of tickets myself.
As I’ve said before, I’ve seen first-hand the dogs that are saved by this group, and know it to be a very worthwhile cause. This is a great way for them to raise money, and help find homes for even more retired Greyhounds.
The draw is being held August 16 in Moncton, as part of the Greyhound Picnic. (rain date is August 23) You don’t have to be present to win. You do have to arrange to pick up the laptop, but I don’t think that would be much of a problem. There is a note that if fewer than 175 tickets are sold by the draw date, that they will hold a 50/50 draw instead. I’m hoping for a laptop!
If you’re interested in purchasing a ticket, don’t hesitate to send me a note. Thanks!
