Greyhound Pets of America in Central Texas will present Greyt Gatsby, a 1920s costume gala to benefit the re-homing of adoptable greyhounds in the Austin area in 2016. With the recent decision to close the last greyhound race track in Texas in 2016, GPA-CT is preparing for a dramatic increase in the number of adoptable greyhounds, fueling the need for more resources to successfully care for, train, and eventually place each animal in a forever home.

Expecting more than 300 attendees, the 1920s costume gala and fundraiser hosted at The Brodie Homestead will feature a live greyhound runway show with models, styled in era-appropriate attire by Red Stella Salon; the world premiere of a mini-movie focusing on dispelling the misconceptions about the breed and the real joys of adopting a greyhound produced by Austin-based digital agency Slice Media; a luxury “Greyt Gatsby” themed photo booth provided by Oh Happy Day Booth; a period-themed lounge created by Birch + Brass Vintage Rentals; and numerous raffle items with prizes totaling more than $5,000. Throughout the night guests will sip on “Greyhound” and “Salty Dog” cocktails provided by Tito’s Vodka and nibble on desserts from Baked by Amy’s in addition to a variety of other local bites.
