OSU Fundraiser

If you weren't outside Saturday, you missed out on one of the 10 best days of summer. A group of VAGA volunteers got up early, and hauled their way over to Culpeper to support a cause near and dear to us.

The Greyhound Health and Wellness Program at Ohio State University is privately funded and therefore relies on contributions to continue it's work. We held this car wash to help Dr. Couto and his "Hound Team" continue with their research and battle against cancer in greyhounds.

It's always a long day at the carwash, but it's always rewarding. We can never thank the community enough for their support. The people in Culpeper are receptive and generous. Thanks again to Walmart for letting us stage this event, and a special thanks to McDonald's for donating the food to feeding the hungry volunteers. Speaking about those volunteers, I hope the Advil, Aleve, Motrin, or aspirin kicked in for you and you were able to get out of bed today. Thanks, without you all this would not be possible.

Lastly, a big thank you to our sidewalk workers. These folks and their dogs stand there all day passing out information and collecting donations. We greatly appreciate what you do.
