)-- Armitage Bistro in DC Ranch will host the 2013 Corks and Collars Wine Tasting and silent auction fundraiser on October 26, 2013 from 3 PM to 6 PM. All proceeds from the afternoon will go directly to Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue (DLRR) for the rehoming, medical care and rehabilitation of rescued Labrador Retrievers in Arizona.
Guests will sample an array of fine wines and New Belgium beer, and bid on wonderful items from the silent auction including a Rombauer VIP Lunch Package (Private tour and tasting at Rombauer Vineyards in St. Helena, CA and private lunch with K.R. Rombauer), rare cases of wine (unavailable commercially and limited to either five or ten case lots), Disneyland passes and hotel stay, New Belgium Fat Tire Cruiser bicycle, Dinner at Elements at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain and much more.
“DLRR operates solely on the generous hearts of our volunteers and individual donors,” says Colleen O’Halloran, President of DLRR. “In 2012, our veterinary costs exceeded $190,000 and charitable donations from an event like this are very important to keep our rescue open.”
