Days of Wine and Dogs and Horses

This past Friday night we hosted a fabulous event at The Wine Bin- our first annual Yappy Hour.
A portion of our sales that evening was donated to Spay Maryland and the Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue.
What an amazing turn-out. We provided beer and wine tastings and a chocolate and dog treat tasting by Parfections Chocolates. The Rumour Mill (a local restaurant) provided goodies for the humans to chow down on. And entertainment by Crystal Sands (a wonderful up and coming country singer) rounded out the evening.
I am a huge dog (and horse) lover but people are CRAZY when it comes to their dogs. Who would have thought that a yappy hour would draw so many attendees.

We're looking forward to supporting many more good causes.
