While most presidential candidates like to talk about 'campaign finance reform', Guinness Murphy, the only Great Dane in history to run for president, is doing something about it!
Please click "read more" in blue to continue reading and to see pictures from our most successful fundraising event ever!
The recent Guinness for President '08 Campaign Dinner raised $13,791 and Guinness wants you to know that every single penny of that money is earmarked for the vet bills incurred by Great Dane Rescue of North Texas.
The money raised from Guinness' dinner will not be used to fly the candidate across the country, it will not be used to pay for motorcades and podiums and it will not buy 30 second ad space in the middle of prime time t.v.
The money raised from Guinness' dinner will work overtime – spaying and neutering dogs that otherwise would have contributed to the massive unwanted pet population, it will pay to treat dogs that have heartworms, and it will mend the bones of dogs that have been hit by cars (the mending of hearts and souls is covered by GDRNT foster homes who rehabilitate these dogs for free).
Without the support of the following sponsors, the money raised from this event would not have been possible. Please take a moment to visit the sponsor websites by clicking on the links in blue:
