LCBO Tag Days are coming to Cottage Country

We are running our LCBO Tag Days at five different locations
in the Cottage Country Area on August 27th!

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, August 27th, 10:45am - 5:15pm

Gravenhurst 155 Edward Street (Edward St. and Talisman Dr.)

Bracebridge 125 Muskoka Rd 118 West (Wellington St. and Muskoka Rd.)

Bala 3132 HWY 169 (Hwy 169 and Gordon St.)

Port Carling 115 Medora St. (Hwy 118 and Medora St.)

Washago 8409 County Rd. 169 (Hwy 169 and Hwy 11)

We have found the greatest success when we have at least two of our wonderful volunteers and at least two 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:

  • "Cottage Country LCBO Tag Days" in the subject line
  • Your name and that of anyone else accompanying you
  • The location you are available for (Gravenhurst, Bracebridge, Bala, Port Carling, Washago)
  • 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!
