Wine, Dogs and Cats for a Cause!

There’s a party for the animals this weekend – and it involves wine! Bonza Bash Summer 2009 will benefit  The Seattle Humane Society, and juice will be flowing from Washington wineries such as Darby, DiStefano, Sparkman Cellars, Barrage Cellars and Bookwalter, in addition to Australian wines, The Black Chook and Woop Woop.

The fun begins Saturday (Aug. 22) at 8 p.m. at Seattle’s Fremont Studios with wine tasting and appetizers; dancing “to old school and new school beats” begins at 11 p.m. and goes through 2 a.m.  There also will be raffles and a silent auction including restaurant and spa gift certificates, winery packages and tickets to sports events.

The Seattle Humane Society will benefit from ticket sales, raffles, silent auctions and donations. And you know what a good cause this is — the shelter in Bellevue gives healthy and adoptable animals as long as it takes for staff to find them homes, regardless of their age, breed or beauty. We know this from first-hand experience because we have two shelter dogs.

Two items to note:

  • All previous Bonza Bash events have sold out quickly, so you are encouraged to purchase tickets soon at the Bonza Bash Summer 2009 website.
  • There’s a “Red, White and Bright” dress code of colorful summer cocktail attire
