This Thursday, the owners of Raleigh & Company are holding a holiday reception and fundraising event at their fine pet goods store with 10% of proceeds going to benefit Clancy’s Cure, an organization that raises funds for cutting-edge research on cancer treatment and prevention conducted through Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
Get some of your holiday shopping done and your purchases will help to fund canine cancer research through Clancy’s Cure, founded by Bill Gorgas.
Gorgas and his wife Barbara, adopted the two familiar Golden Retrievers who had belonged to the Monsigneur at St. Mary’s Church on Greenwich Avenue. The two dogs were a fixture in the church yard on Greenwich Ave for many years.
Clancy was one of the two retrievers adopted by Barbara and Bill. The Gorgases had Clancy and Chase, who were brothers, for just over a year when Clancy died suddenly of a form of cancer that was not detected during his recent vet check and blood work. The Gorgas learned the type of cancer is common with Golden Retrievers and started Clancys Cure, an endowment to raise funds for research for a cure.
Raleigh & Co owners Betsy and Diane, whose store is named after their dog Raleigh, will donate 10% of the day’s sales on Thursday to Clancy’s Cure.
Stop in from 5:00 – 7:00 to mingle with other pet lovers enjoy light refreshments and raise a toast to Clancy – the much loved Golden Retriever who inspired Clancy’s Cure.
