Dooley’s Wine Tasting & Silent Auction, A Doggone Success (photos)

[nggallery id=163] Dooley’s 4th Annual Wine Tasting  & Silent Auction took place on August 11th, and animal lovers lined up at the Grape Choice to join in for a pawsatively wonderful evening.  Dooley’s Dog House teamed up with The Grape Choice to plan and present this special fundraiser, benefitting Kirkland Off-Leash Dog Group (KDOG) and Pasado’s Safe Haven. KDOG is an all-volunteer organization building Kirkland’s first Dog Park.  Pasado’s Safe Haven is one of the premier animal rescue organizations in the country, dedicated to 24-hour rescue and rehabilitation of dogs, cats, and farm animals.

Event goers sampled outstanding wines and great food, and had the opportunity to meet the sweet dogs and cats up for adoption.  While bidding on fabulous auction items, guests were treated to the musical talents of Marilyn & the G Strings.  Nearly $7,500 was raised, with the proceeds shared between the two non-profit groups. This fundraiser was made possible by the generosity of the event hosts, Larry Springer, Penny Sweet, and Chuck and Marti Bartlett.

The money raised at the event is also the direct result of the auction donors listed below.  KDOG and Pasado’s Safe Haven are very grateful for these donors and all of the event attendees who bid on the silent auction items.

Thank you to Amy Introligator
