Please join us at As Good as Gold's A Golden Gala - Mardi Gras at Medinah Shrine Center - an elegant and entertaining evening with animal lovers just like you! You'll be treated to an open bar reception with tasty appetizers while bidding on silent auction items. A delicious sit down dinner will be served during which you'll enjoy raffle games and our live auction.

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 2019 event raised, after expenses, more than $99,000. This year we hope to raise even more! Your support is vital to the care of our rescued golden retrievers and golden mixes.

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 2,600 goldens.

Our Mission
As Good as Gold - Golden Retriever Rescue of Illinois is dedicated to the rescue, care and adoption of Golden Retrievers and golden mixes who are in need. In addition, As Good as Gold educates Golden Retriever guardians and the general public about the importance of spaying/neutering, positive training methods, diet and exercise, appropriate medical treatment and humane care.
