Dogs from Austin Greyhound Adoption dressed for the occasion as they marched in the 25th Annual Chuy’s Children Giving to Children Parade. DEBORAH CANNON / AMERICAN-STATESMAN

This 1920s-themed cocktail party aims to benefit Austin-area greyhounds that are looking for homes. Now that the last greyhound racetrack in Texas has closed, Greyhound Pets of America in Central Texas anticipates a dramatic increase in these adoptable dogs and needs more resources to care for, train and eventually place each dog in a loving home.

The gala will feature a greyhound runway show, raffle prizes, Greyhound and Salty Dog cocktails and more.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Friday. $50. Brodie Homestead, 5211 Brodie Lane.
