World’s Largest Dog Wash benefits children at Gilda’s Club

Gilda's Club, World's Largest Dog Wash

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) A clean dog equals a happy dog. Bring your four-legged furry friend to the World’s Largest Dog Wash. Fido will love a scrub behind the ears, and you’ll be helping to raise funds for the youth program at Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids. For $10, your furry friend will receive a wash and towel dry, grooming, doggie bag (while supplies last) and information from area businesses and veterinarians. Plus, don’t miss the pet contest with prizes from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Celebrity judges will select the best pet trick, tallest, longest ears and pet owner Look-A-Like.

Proceeds raised at the dog wash will benefit the children’s programs at Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids. Gilda’s offers a free, comprehensive support program for children (ages 3-18) who are grieving from the death of a friend or family member due to cancer or other health-related issues, accident, murder or suicide. Children can find support among their peers within the special groups for teens, “tweens” and younger children. Many of the adult groups meet at the same time as the children’s groups; click here for details. All of our groups are facilitated by Master’s Degree-level professionals.
