Arizona Biltmore’s “GOLDEN FRIDAY”

A twist on traditional Black Friday, the Shoppes at the Arizona Biltmore will present “Golden Friday” and the Biltmore has invited AGR to do special gift wrapping of gifts purchased there.  Afterwards, they will be serving a special “Golden Champagne” to inviting shoppers to unwind. 

For those who participated in the previous Biltmore’s Spire Bar event this should be just as relaxing and fun.  This event will only require a few great gift-wrappers, but we will also include multiple goldens wearing donation vests to provide an opportunity for guests to relax and hug on a Golden and hopefully, place a donation in our Goldens’ vests.

“Oh What Fun It is to Ride……” or stroll in a Christmas Parade. 

The Hometown Christmas Parade in Glendale has been an AGR favorite for many years.  A relaxed mile-and-a-half stroll through downtown Glendale, seeing thousands of smiling faces, little children squealing when they see the AGR dogs coming and putting donations in the vest of our dogs makes for a fun morning. 

Dress in red and Christmas décor for you and you Golden and join others having fun and getting some exercise, too.  A family day of fun everyone can participate in.
