BROOD 2020 Virtual Ramble

BROOD's 23rd Annual Ramble Fundraiser is going virtual this year due to COVID-19 restrictions  


We have planned lots of fun online and virtual activities starting in early July and ending on September 19--the day we had originally planned to have the Ramble event in Northern Virginia.

Ways to Support the Ramble

Sponsorships for Individuals 

Last year we were privileged to have 84 generous and loyal BROOD members and followers support the Ramble by becoming sponsors.  We have sponsorships again this year with new incentives!  Sponsors will receive special thank-you gifts:  Basset Foldable Tote Bag, Basset Hound kitchen towel, BROOD leash and waste bag holder, or BROOD pen and flashlight set. Every sponsor will also receive a BROOD hand sanitizer. Each is a thank you for your generous Ramble sponsorship.

Sponsorships are a great way to support the Virtual Ramble.  Become a Harvest, Pumpkin, Scarecrow or Acorn sponsor today.  More information on our sponsorship page and in our sponsorship packet.

Can't be a sponsor this year?  Become a Virtual Attendee.  Get more info about how to join in the fun and also get a BROOD hand sanitizer.

Sponsorships for Businesses and Veterinarians

Showcase your business or veterinary clinic/practice at the Ramble and support BROOD at the same time by becoming a Harvest, Pumpkin, Scarecrow, Corn Maze or Acorn sponsor. Your business will be listed on the BROOD website for a year as part of your sponsorship.  Click here for more information on business sponsorships.
