It’s time for the NGA’s Pup Giveaway

This was the 44th straight year the NGA put on their annual Pup Giveaway. It is a fundraiser to benefit the Greyhound Hall of Fame. All proceeds from the event go toward the Hall, which was built in 1973. The annual Pup Giveaway campaign began just one year later.
NGA members and Review readers participated in the campaign by purchasing tickets for the drawing. The giveaway took place at the Fall Meet Banquet on October 11, 2017 in Abilene.
The three pup prizes for the 2017 campaign all came from successful owners and breeding programs. This years contributors were Steve Sarras of Wheeling, WV; David Strong of Solomon, KS and Mike Harris of Booneville, AR.
Who wouldn’t want to win any of these three promising youngsters? But to have any chance, you must get your tickets in soon for the October 11th drawing. With some early bird tickets in the summer 2017 issue of the Review, there’s no better time to do that than now.
The NGA and the Hall of FAme would like to say a special thank you to Steve, Mike, and David for their contributions to this year’s fundraiser.
