Time to Wash Your Dog and Help Gilda’s Club Too
You know you want to. You know, wash your dog, right? Okay, not. So, why don't you let someone do it for you and help a wonderful organization at the same time? Get going! It's TODAY!
Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids is hosting their 17th Annual World’s Largest Dog Wash at Fifth Third Ballpark today, Sunday, July 28. The fundraiser will take place from
3-6 p.m. prior to the annual West Michigan Whitecaps “Dog Days” game. The pre-game festivities will feature dog washes, grooming, information from local pet vendors, pet trick contests and doggy bag giveaways. This year’s event is presented by Bissell, 100.5 The River and Mix 95.7.
The dog wash has become an annual event after being started Cody Kropf, who was 8 years old at the time. Kropf became a member of Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids following the death of his father.
The cost for the dog wash is $10 per dog, and they do all the work. Proceeds will support the cancer and grief programs offered through Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids.
Tickets for the West Michigan Whitecaps 6 p.m. “Dog Days” game against the Great Lakes Loons can be purchased at groupmatics.events/group/Gildasclub. A portion of the proceeds from tickets sold using the link will benefit Gilda’s Club.
