Goldstock 2004


Now in its 7th year, Goldstock is a national Golden Retriever Rescue fundraiser that's held each Labor Day weekend at a camp in Pennsylvania.  Dozens of Golden Retriever rescue groups and hundreds of Golden Retriever owners and their dogs assemble there for 3 days of friendship, fun, food and fundraising. 

GRRI has been a participant in Goldstock since almost its very beginnings, and each year our volunteers and their Goldens return from the event happily exhausted, and grateful for the outpouring of financial support the event brings to our group.

.

This year was no exception. Goldstock supporters raised well over $100,000 for the participating rescue groups. Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, who donated items on our behalf for the auction and elsewhere, as well as GRRI product sales and the 50/50 raffle, supporters at Goldstock helpd GRRI raise nearly $10,000. Since GRRI is fully volunteer staffed, that $10,000 will buy a lot for our Goldens!!

$2,000 came from the 50/50 raffle alone, when the winners, GRRI Adopters Bruce and Helaine Taub, donated their 50% share back to GRRI, in memory of volunteer Joann Smith, who helped them adopt GRRI Golden, Rascal.  Thank you again, Bruce and Helaine!

It's this kind of generosity that abounds at Goldstock. 

As always, we look forward to next year, and thank everyone very much for their support!!

Following are just a few highlight photos.  To learn more about the event, the groups that participated, and the Goldstock Fund,  and to see many more photos from this and previous years, visit the Goldstock website.
