GTHS Sunset Cruise Glows Into The Sunset

The 2nd annual GTHS Sunset Cruise was an amazing evening spent out on the water to help homeless and abandon animals. 50 passionate community members boarded Collingwood Charters for a tour of Georgian Bay’s coastline and escarpment. The Cruise featured a live auction, raffles, delicious and locally prepared cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

“I am so excited to have the opportunity to support the GTHS. I have always loved animals and I am so happy that the GTHS introduced Greg and I to our furry friend Elly. She now has a forever home on our farm and loves to cruise with us on the Bay.” Says Lauren Matthews, Captain of Collingwood Charters.

The Sunset Cruise took place Thursday August 24th, and resulted in over $14,000 of funds raised to help homeless animals in need.

“What a night! We are extremely grateful to our generous community for once again stepping up for animals in our community. The night could not have been possible without the talented crew of Collingwood Charters, the support of our guests and the incredible efforts of our volunteers. We are feeling very thankful.” Said Executive Director, Sonya Reichel

The Georgian Triangle Humane Society is looking forward to upcoming community events. The next being the annual Friends for Life Walkathon September 30th taking place in the Blue Mountain Village and new this year a second location in Meaford. To learn more visit or visit the shelter daily at 549 Tenth Line in Collingwood.
