Episode 70: You’re Invited––Fall 2018 Greyhound Events in NJ (And One in NY!)

Don’t miss a thing or all the fun!

Here comes Autumn!  And with it, comes a dozen major events happening in New Jersey, and one in New York, throughout the season. If you’re not from the NJ area, you may want to listen as you may get some “pawesome” fundraising ideas for events you can implement within your greyhound adoption organization. And if you are from the New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Delaware area, we’re looking forward to see you and our events this Fall!
