Golf Tournament Sign Up

CGA Golf Tournament
It is time to register for CGA CGA's 14th Annual Golf Tournament

This year, the golf tournament will be held on Saturday, July 19th.  It is an event that CGA puts on every year that gets a lot of outside exposure.  This four-person scramble will begin with a shotgun start at 7:30 am for golfers.  The entry fee will include green fee, cart, rang balls, lunch and great prices.

The deadline for golfers and lunch tickets for the tournament at The Homestead at Fox Hollow in Lakewood, Colorado, is Thursday, July 10th.

If you don't feel like getting up that early or are not a golfer, come join everyone for lunch.  Don't forget to arrive before lunch for a meet and greet that will be held while the golfers are on the course and shop for swag at the CGA store while you wait.
Let friends, family, co-workers, and your business know that they can sponsor a hole.  It is a great opportunity to promote a business, display family photos, or do a memorial for a loved one.

Last year, we had 51 golfers and 13 teams. We look forward to surpassing this number this year.

altYou can register securely online at the CGA Shop by clicking here or download this form and mail it with payment to CGA Golf, PO Box 2404, Littleton, CO 80161.

Entry fee is $135 per golfer
Lunch only tickets are $25 each
Hole Sponsorship is $150 per hole

If you have any questions, please contact Jayson Mines directly by email or at 303, 512-3883.

All profits from this event will directly benefit retired racing greyhounds in Colorado.  CGA is a 501-c3 non-profit organization, and as such, all donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS.

Calendar Sign Up

It’s that time again!

The 2015 In The Company of Greyhounds calendar photo shoot is Sunday, April 27th, at 7:00 AM.

Is this the year for you to volunteer to be in our highly successful In the Company of Greyhounds calendar?

Everyone is welcome to volunteer. The only prerequisite is that you have a greyhound.

The photo shoot has turned in to quite an event and a good time is had by all!  Volunteers will be added to the list on a first-come basis.  Extras will be on the list for back-ups, in the event that someone has to drop out.

We'll let you know what to wear, but it will most likely be something that you already have in your closet.  The dogs won't need anything special this year, unless you have something your dog likes to wear.

We're currently deciding between two locations on the west side of the metro area and will let you know as soon as possible.  Because the photographers are at the mercy of the sun this time of year, the photo shoot will begin at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 27th. 

If you would like to be included please email Kathy Rowley at at with your name, address, phone number(s), email address, and the name(s) of your dog(s), their color, and their ages.

We look forward to seeing you!
Thanks, Kathy

Spotlight on Missy

Missy spotlight photo Well hello, dearies!  This is Missy again.

You may remember that just a few weeks ago I was featured in a spotlight and on facebook. After my spotlight appeared, there were a number of human families that wanted to meet me.

While I enjoyed my time with my foster family, I am happy to say that I have adopted a wonderful family of my very own.  In addition, I have a new greyhound pal, Dazzle.

I want to thank everyone for their interest.  And a special thanks to my foster family, and CGA for matching me with my forever home.
