Changes to Raffle donations for GoldenFest Reunion

Read about the changes to the Raffle

Our reunion has a new name….GRRMF GoldenFest!

The focus continues to be on fun, education and has two locations to pick from (or attend both!) to accommodate our wonderful volunteers and adopters from coast to coast.  

Our Spring GoldenFest Reunion is scheduled for March 2, 2019 at  Ralph V. Chisholm Park in St. Cloud. Watch for information for our Fall GoldenFest being planned for November 2019 in the St. Petersburg area. 

In the planning process we wanted to simplify the raffle and at the same time focus our donations to emphasize and educate others on the communities we service and who have supported us for so many years. With this new approach we are restructuring our raffle and silent auction to align to this commitment. 

In past years we have accepted personal items ranging from household items to clothing and dog related products, accepting many the day of the reunion for the raffle and silent auction. 

Starting this year, we are asking for entertainment admission tickets, gift certificates or gift cards to your favorite restaurants or shops that you want others to know about in your community.We also will be accepting gift cards to favorite places that may be in multiple areas (“chain establishments) like Panera, Publix, Outback, Target, PetSmart, Home Goods etc .

We ask if you wish to donate items this year to mail these tickets, gift certificates or gift cards to: GRRMF,  P.O. Box 1449, Goldenrod, Fl.  32733, no later than 1 week prior to the GoldenFest. If you wish to ask your favorite places to donate to GRRMF, a new sponsor letter is attached below to share information with them. Also please use the attached donation sponsor form to help us properly recognize and thank you and your sponsor for your support.
