Drinking a variety of wine with your loving mother, all while supporting animals in need. Can you think of a better way to spend your Friday evening? I don’t think so.
The Athens County Humane Society’s ImPRessions team is holding their annual wine tasting fundraiser, Woof n’ Wine, this upcoming Mom’s Weekend! The team of upcoming PR pros is carrying on the tradition that started last year, in hopes to raise not only funds, but also awareness for the Athens County Humane Society.
The ACHS is a non-profit organization that receives no funding from the National Humane Society. Their mission is to promote better care and compassion for animals, as well as provide spay and neuter assistance, and education to reduce local abandonment and euthanasia rates of healthy animals. They currently have no shelter, and all their staff works on a volunteer basis.
The event is open to all Ohio University students and their mothers. An assortment of five different wines will be served throughout the night, accompanied by Murray’s cheese. Plus, all guests will receive a quick lesson about each wine they taste from our wine educator. Live music from Ohio University’s acappella groups will entertain you and your mom while sipping on some merlot. Not to mention all of the other fun activities to do such as decorating your own wine charm or snapping a few quick pictures in the photo booth with your mom! Did I mention the awesome prizes you could win at the silent auction?
Kroger helps make all of this possible by donating wine glasses for each guest to take home, as well as the time of the wine educator. The event is taking place at 7 pm on Friday, April 4th, 2014.
So by now you are dying to bring your mom to the coolest event of the weekend, and you’re not alone! Last year Woof n’ Wine sold out within 24 hours, so do not miss your chance. Tickets are on sale now! Click here to purchase.
The ACHS ImPRessions team has been hard at work all semester planning and executing to make this event nothing short of perfect. We plan on growing the event to be double the size of last years, and twice the fun as well! We broke up into four smaller teams, each one having a step in the planning process to focus on. Each member of the ACHS account has proven to be a crucial part in making this event successful, and as a whole we are not only executing a stellar event for our client, but having fun and learning so much while doing it.
