Ruff-le (Raffle) for Dog Run 142
Join the Dog Run 142 Committee on Thursday, April 4th at The Wallace (3612 Broadway) for a raffle to benefit the 142nd Street Dog Run in Riverside Park!
Enter for a chance to win hundreds in gift cards and prizes from local Hamilton Heights businesses – including Harlem Public, At the Wallace, the Honeywell, Bono Trattoria, Uptown Bourbon, Hamilton’s, Pets on Broadway, Off the Grid, Good Juice, Mama Sushi, Trufa, Lyn-Genet’s Kitchen, Whadda Pita – and more!
The 142nd Dog Run is a community-initiated and run project, first opening in 2016 with the support of the NYC Parks Department, the Riverside Park Conservancy, Councilman Mark Levine’s office, and countless local businesses and volunteers. The 142nd Street Dog Run has brought together many diverse individuals, families, and puppies. The 142nd Street Dog Run aims to be an inclusive and safe space for everyone, and invites dog lovers from all over NYC to join us in our fun. The Dog Run, however, does not yet have permanent status. As of 2018, the Dog Run has begun organizing officially to gain more permanent status in Riverside Park.
The funds from our Ruf-fle on April 4th will go towards much needed maintenance and improvement projects for the 142nd Dog Run. This includes more things from new mulch to more durable and higher fencing.
The date of the Ruf-fle coincides with Mark Levine’s Participatory Budget Vote – The 142nd Dog Run on the ballot, and we encourage all to vote from March 30th to April 7th. The Participatory Budget funds will help us make larger scale, fundamental changes to the structure of the Dog Run. Our contributions and funds will be all the more necessary after these changes in order to maintain the park for years to come.
One Ruf-fle ticket will get you 4 entries into our drawing – which includes HUNDREDS IN PRIZES FROM LOCAL HAMILTON HEIGHTS BUSINESSES! – as well a wrist band for discounts at happy hour at Harlem Public, At the Wallace, and the Honeywell.
Tickets purchased through this eventbrite will be available for pick-up at the event on April 4th. You do not need to be present to win!
