Chef Chris Ward Supports Greyhounds With Afternoon of Foodie Fun At The Mercury

Mercury chef Chris Ward loves the greyhounds.

Dog days of summer got you down? Prepare to perk up on from 2 to 5 pm on Saturday, September 10 when Mercury chef Chris Ward will host an afternoon of food & fun and a silent auction at The Mercury benefiting The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT).

Tickets run $65 and include one drink ticket (additional beverages at cash bar), cooking demonstration and tastings with Chris Ward, souvenir recipe book of demonstrated recipes, and a doggy bag of special canine treats for your pampered pooch. VIP seats (only 7 available) go for $125 and get you a front row seat at Chef Ward’s cooking bar.

“We are so excited to have Chef Ward with us again this year,” say John and Susie McQuade, GALT co-founders. “The proceeds from the cooking demonstration will help provide for the growing needs of GALT and the growing number of greyhounds we currently have in foster care.”

Seating is limited. To purchase tickets online www.galtx.org or 972-503-GALT.
