There’s No Place Like Home – GHS VARIETY SHOW
“There’s No Place Like Home” Variety Show is the first television event of its kind! It will air on Rogers tv in Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, Brantford and Stratford on Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 7pm-9pm. It will also be available to stream live on the Rogers tv website.
Hosted by The Weather Network’s Kim MacDonald, a long-time national television host and animal lover, “There’s No Place Like Home” will feature local musical and dance acts, educational animal segments, and holiday-inspired special moments, all from inside our brand new home at 190 Hanlon Creek Boulevard. And to end the show, we will be pulling the winning ticket LIVE on the air for what we hope will be our BIGGEST 50/50 lottery jackpot yet!
We will be selling 50/50 tickets leading up to the show, plus running an online auction. All money raised goes towards the vulnerable animals in our care as they wait for their Happy Tails. Because the animals all know that there’s no place like home.
