Weim & Cheese fundraiser is June 21

Weim & CheeseHere's a fundraising event that's near and dear to my heart: Louisville Weimaraner Rescue's first Weim & Cheese, which will be held in New Albany on June 21.

I'm flattered and pleased that I, Jackson Silverheels Gray, was chosen to be the poster boy for this event! As you may already know, I was taken care of by Louisville Weimaraner Rescue before I found my forever family and became the WineCanine. (My predecessor, Milo Zane Grey, was cared for by Weimaraner Rescue of the South before he moved to Indiana.)

Even though Louisville Weimaraner Rescue is run completely by dedicated volunteers, the bills add up quickly — veterinary services, prescriptions, insurance and food among them. Adoption fees alone can't generate enough income to cover expenses, so donations of goods, services and funds are important.

LWR's Weim & Cheese event will be a fun way to raise money to help offset those costs. The evening will feature a raffle, silent auction, live auction, yummy hors d'œuvres, beer, a cash bar, and of course wines and Weims! Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 at the door. Donations for the auctions are welcome, and since LWR is a 501(C)3 not-for-profit organization, tax-deductible.

To order tickets, send a check or money order to Louisville Weimaraner Rescue, 16810 Highway 62, Charlestown IN 47111-9728. To donate auction items, call 812-256-3967 or send an email to Denise King or Jackie Pondy. (And tell them Jackson sent you!)
