Wine To The Rescue

WineCollective was pleased to attend and participate in an event that is very near to our hearts. Wine To The Rescue, an evening of awareness, fundraising, food and wine, hosted by Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS).  This was the second annual Wine to the Rescue event, benefiting the efforts of AARCS and Okotoks Pound Rescue, helping to find loving homes for dogs in need. Amber was there representing WineCollective, volunteering and pouring some of our favourite wines for the thirsty bidders.

  

Held at the  Gerry Thomas Art Gallery in the Beltline neighbourhood of Calgary,  some the groups’ most famous rescue pooches were in attendance. There was also a silent auction, great food and of course wine!
