Join us at A Golden Ball!

Please join us at As Good as Gold's A Golden Ball at Medinah Shrine Center - an elegant and entertaining evening with animal lovers just like you! You'll be treated to an open bar reception while bidding on a silent auction, followed by a delicious dinner and live auction. The evening will be topped off with entertainment and dancing!

Funds raised will support As Good as Gold's program services including veterinary care, canine supplies, and public education. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors and attendees, our 2017 event raised, after expenses, more than $76,000. This year we hope to raise even more! Your support is vital to the care of our rescued golden retrievers and golden mixes.

A 10% service fee will be added to all auction item purchases. For online winning bidders, arrangement for pick-up can be made or the item(s) can be shipped at your expense.

As Good as Gold - Golden Retriever Rescue of Illinois is a volunteer-supported 501c3 organization. Thanks to our members and supporters we have rescued and re-homed more than 2,300 goldens.

Our Mission
