LCBO Tag Days Are Coming to the 401 Area!

We are running our LCBO Tag Days at five different locations
on September 10th and 24th!

Come out and spend a few hours showing off your Golden(s) and talking with people to raise awareness about Golden Rescue!

Tag Days offer opportunities to reach potential adopters, foster families, and volunteers. Having Goldens at these events brings a lot of attention from the public and passersby!

These fundraising opportunities have never been more important as we continue to help ALL Goldens in need, including our precious cargo from Istanbul, Turkey.

Saturday, September 10th, 10:45am - 5:15pm

Ancaster 737 Golf Links Road (Golf Links & Hwy 403)

Peterborough 879 Lansdowne St. W (Lansdowne West & Parkway)

Peterborough 400 Lansdowne St. E (Lansdowne East & Ashburnham)

Lindsay 449 Kent Street W. (Kent & Hwy 35)

 

Saturday, September 24th, 10:45am - 5:15pm

Kingston 1089 Midland Ave (Midland & Princess)

Bellville 190A Bell Blvd (Bell & Northfront)

We have found the greatest success when we have at least three of our wonderful volunteers and at least three Golden Ambassadors for each of the following shifts

10:45 am – 1:00 pm
12:45 pm – 3:00 pm
2:45 pm – 5:15 pm

The 10:45 am volunteers will work with the Awareness Event Lead to set up a small table with brochures and a donation jar. The volunteers closing at 5:15pm will assist the Awareness Event Lead to clean up and count the donations. The Awareness Event Lead will be responsible for getting these materials to each location.

Please note that all LCBO Tag Days take place outside, in front of the LCBOs and we have to be prepared for the weather. Rain or shine, we always have a wonderful time.

This is a wonderful opportunity to reach potential adopters, foster families and volunteers. It's an easy and fun event – people love to meet our Golden Ambassadors! It is also a perfect fundraising opportunity to help care for our foster Goldens as they wait for their forever homes.

If you can volunteer for any shift at any of these locations, please contact volunteer(at)goldenrescue.ca with the following information:

  • "401 LCBO Tag Days" in the subject line
  • Your name and that of anyone else accompanying you
  • The location you are available for (Ancaster, Peterborough, Lindsay, Kingston, Bellville)
  • If you are bringing a Golden Ambassador, their name (and identification number if they are a Golden Rescue)
  • Your cell phone number
  • Which location/time(s) you would be available for

Remember, ALL Golden ambassadors are welcome!
