Epic NYCGriffs Derby Party!

Donation protected
NYCGriffs is planning an EPIC Derby Party on May 7th, 2022, complete with a private event space, food, drinks (mint juleps anyone?), special photo opportunities, professional photographer, Puppercup scooping up delicious treats, AND MORE!
Big stars from out of town are headed our way (yay Twixie, Cowboy and Crumb! Rumor has it an LA based Griff or two )
In order to make our vision and dreams a reality (this event will be bigger and better than anything we’ve done) we would love to get a sense of what our budget is
NYCGriffs is committed to making our events economically accessible to all. We will not be selling tickets to the event, but encourage contributions to make these big dreams a reality! A portion of any extra funds raised above our target will go to National Brussels Griffon Rescue. If we exceed our goal of 5K the event organizers will dream bigger and deliver even more surprises.
We will be live streaming the event for anyone wanting to tune in and support from afar! Our event venue can accommodate upwards of 50 dogs and 70 humans so we anticipate room for just about anyone that can join.
We love our non Brussels furry friends but we do ask that the event is in celebration of our Affen and Griffon friends to ensure enough capacity for our honored guests.
Suggested Contributions:
$10 you love us and support us and want to watch this epic event unfold (social media shout outs as a thank you!)
$25 you plan to attend with 1 dog and 1 human
$50 you plan on attending with multiple dogs/humans
$100 VIP extra swag bag, photographer session, custom merch, unlimited open bar wrist band, and other awesome stuff I haven’t thought of yet!
The event will take place on Rosevelt Island rain or shine (we have a big tent!). There is plentiful outdoor offleash space for the pups. I don’t know how to refund through go fund me but if plans fall through please reach out to NYCGriffs and we can work on a venmo refund.
Thank you! This event will be amazing no matter how much we raise and a donation is not mandatory to attend.
