NGA News - The Greyhound Hall Of Fame's annual fund-raising Dinner/Auction is scheduled for Tuesday evening, Apr. 19, during the NGA Spring Meet at the museum in Abilene.
Consignments and prizes for the auction and raffle segments of the program are now being accepted and can be submitted to the NGA either by phone, fax or e-mail.
The first-ever dinner/auction was held last year at the fall meet, but beginning this year, this event will now be a permanent part of the NGA's Spring Meet program. The Hall Of Fame Club banquet will continue to be held during the Fall Meets.
All proceeds for the event will go directly toward the day-to-day operation of the Hall Of Fame. Last year's event was a huge success, with more than $24,000 raised for the cause.
Auction items and prizes again being sought for the upcoming event include stud services, greyhound services, pups, artwork, books, clothing items and gift certificates.
Vince Berland of Flying Eagles Kennel has started the ball rolling with consignments, offering stud services to Flying Hydrogen, Flying Train, Dragon Fire, BD's Grayson, Flying Stanley and Flying Oak. A list will be updated daily and available on this website, starting later this week.
