  • GigabitNow was thrilled to be a part of Nala Palooza, a fantastic dog festival that brought our community together for a day of food, fun, and games, all while supporting a wonderful cause. This event was not just about celebrating our furry friends but also raising funds for the Nala Fund, which goes a long way in providing essential medical care to dogs in need.

    For a mere $10, participants could embark on the thrilling Poker Run, exploring five locations in Mill Race Park. Collecting playing cards along the way, participants were in for an adventure that included fantastic perks such as one week FREE at CrossFit Ripcord, complimentary food from Wendy’s and Jaggers, and a chance to win a plethora of exciting prizes. The top 5 players even received giant pumpkins and prizes worth over $300, adding an extra layer of excitement to the day.

    Nala Palooza was a day of celebration, dedicated to honoring the unwavering love, joy, and companionship that dogs bring to our lives. It was heartwarming to see families and friends come together, enjoying the festivities and sharing their love for our four-legged companions.
