baseball headerBecause of our friends at Nestle Purina and the St. Louis Cardinals, we have an amazing opportunity approaching!  On September 8, Purina has sponsored GPG to have a booth at the game for adoptable pets (Janet Roberts: events@gatewaypets.com is working on the details for that).  In addition, they have offered us a first pitch at that night’s game!  We are so excited to honor our Program and Committee Leads with this once in a lifetime opportunity!
The daily dedication of our Leads allows us to save the thousands of lives we do each year!  I am ecstatic about this opportunity to honor the extraordinary women that keep GPG running smoothly and push us to continue to grow!
Since there are eight ladies that will be honored (Natalie Creamer- Community Outreach, Allison Busby – Rescue, Kimmy Nasti – Shelter, Janet Roberts – Foster, Sandy Gambill – Adoption, Kim Westerman – Volunteer, Kara Dalton – Education and Brittany Heinen – Fundraising Committee), they will all be on the field for the pitch but only one will be able to represent the team.  Janet Roberts has been chosen (by random drawing) to represent them and throw out the ceremonial first pitch!
In addition, we have reached out to the Cardinals and they have given us the opportunity to purchase tickets to the game for only $5!  We would love for as many of you to join us and show some GPG love!  We will be wearing our red GPG t-shirts and will all be in the same section (left field pavilion).  The first pitches start at 6:30pm.  So, please arrive before then if you’d like to see Janet throw out the pitch!
$5 discounted tickets will ONLY be available beginning AUG 26 and will be available until SEPT 7.  Use this link to purchase tickets www.cardinals.com/gatewaypets starting August 26.
