Paws for the Cause: Fundraiser for the Gulf Coast

A friend and fellow sanctuary volunteer is involved in a fundraiser for the victims of the Deepwater oil spill in the Gulf Coast – human and non-human animals.

There is an upcoming event in Northern Virgina at a local winery, Barrel Oak Winery. You might remember an earlier BOW event last December, in honor of Sheryl’s beloved Mina who passed away in November. That event was to benefit Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary.

I like to support these events, both because Sheryl is a friend and the Gulf Coast is her childhood home, making this catastrophe close to her heart, and also because I love the fact that BOW is so supportive of events like this.

BOW, like most Virginia wineries, creates vegan wines – clay is the fining agent. (There’s certainly plenty of clay around!) They are also a dog-friendly and kid-friendly place, with a gorgeous location and large patio. People come from all over the region to hang out on the patio or inside the main room, usually bringing their own food and busing their own tables.

And on August 15, 2010, they are hosting a fundraiser, driven by Sheryl, in support of the Gulf victims. From 1-5 pm, 10% of every bottle of Bowhaus White sold will go towards the fundraiser. In addition Sheryl is making and bringing delicious vegan treats for donation! Sheryl often brings treats with her to the sanctuary, so I can personally attest to her mad baking skills!

Hope to see you there…
