Wigglebutts Uncorked Gala Fundraiser For Rescue Dogs
This coming April Jim and I take a journey from Las Vegas to New York and join the Wigglebutt Warriors®. It’s our first time attending a Wigglebutt Warrior® gala. We’re excited to help rescue animals, and enjoy a night in America’s oldest winery.
The event aptly named Wigglebutts Uncorked is a gala fundraiser for dogs in need. Wigglebutt Warriors® is the fundraising arm of the popular pet blog Fidose of Reality. The Founders, Carol and Darlene Bryant, along with their Cocker Spaniel, Dexter, are the superheroes crusading to save dogs’ lives. Benefiting from this gala is the NYC Second Chance Rescue.
Fundraising for rescues animals is near and dear to my heart, and I’m thrilled to say I’m not only attending this spectacular pet-friendly event, I’m showing my support as a media sponsor.
Through a commercial on my radio show, I’m sharing the event information. We want to see this event sold out and as much money raised as possible.
Currently, my hero friends have raised over $33,000 for homeless Cocker Spaniels to aid with medical, food, and basic needs until they find their forever homes. What Carol, Darlene, and Dexter are doing is the work of angels, they make a difference for rescue dogs, and relieve some of the financial pressure off rescue organizations who take them in.
So let me tell you a little more about what we’re going to experience at the gala. Most importantly this is a pet-friendly event. I’m a huge fan of large events, especially ones where pets are not just welcomed they’re expected to attend.
There’s no better way to start an event than walking the red carpet. Who doesn’t love all the razzle dazzle of posing for the cameras? We’ll nibble on hors-d’oeuvres, enjoy a full dinner buffet, dessert, and a wine bar…hello we’re in a winery, we’ve got to drink the wine.
We’ll dance the night away, bid on auction items, and hopefully win some prizes. But that’s not all folks, we’re going to be entertained by the Wigglebutts Got Talent show and cheer on the winners of the Wiggy Awards.
Have I convinced you to buy a ticket yet?
There’s another exciting part of this gala, that has me involved. However, I’m going to leave that for my next blog post. It deserves a post all of its own, so stayed tuned.
Wigglebutts Uncorked takes place at Brotherhood, America’s Oldest Winery Est. 1839 inside the Grand Monarque Hall or the Grand Salon as it has often been called. It’s an early 19th century stone building with towering ceilings, hand crafted wooden floors, exposed wooden beams, and ten-foot round antique wrought iron chandeliers that all come together in a historic setting full of old world charm. The Grand Monarque Hall was built in 1860 and was actually where the wine was made before it was converted into an event space. The Brit in me is itching to see this old winery, I’ll feel quite at home in such an old place.
Jim and I know Wigglebutts Uncorked will be a memorable evening, shared with others who love and care about rescue dogs. Attending the gala is a glamorous and fun way to support the Wigglebutt Warriors® in their crusade to save dogs.
