Wine Tasting Fundraiser for Judy

The February 15 wine tasting event at Vines Wine Merchants raised $2,980! Thank you to Judy’s foster mom, Julie Brown, for organizing this event to help cover Judy’s veterinary expenses. So far in life, Judy has had more than her fair share of bad luck. When she came into our care, she was suffering from a gunshot wound that required the amputation of her leg. Then she needed a second surgery to repair a separate, older injury to her hip. Judy is a sweet dog that is worthy of a second chance for a happy, pain-free life.

The evening included a tasting of six wines led by an entertaining sommelier. There was also a silent auction, wine raffle, Hors-d’oeuvres, door prizes, a SCARS slideshow and a chance to meet adorable Judy!

Thank you to our sponsors including Vines Wine Merchants, Antrim Construction, Fuss Cupcakes, Hart’s Table, Chianti’s on Whyte, Famoso Magrath, Tim Hortons Towne Square, Sobeys Southbrook, Bone & Biscuit Magrath, Jeneane S. Grundberg of Brownlee LLP Barristers and Solicitors, Brown & Hone Orthodontics and a special thank you to Ruff Cuts Pet Spa for grooming the dogs for the event gratis.
