Special Event at Tria Fermentation School

A group of wine aficienados are hosting a special event at Tria Fermentation School on March 25th to support Morris Animal Refuge and PAWS in Philadelphia. They’ve got a few seats left and are offering them to Foobooz readers.

Collectors are donating Old World and New World wines such as Haut-Brion ’88, Rubicon, Kistler Chardonnay ’01, Abacus and more. It looks to  be a great opportunity to taste these wines and support our furry friends. Philly sweets purveyor Betty’s Tasty Buttons is also donating fudge, “pipsqueaks” (cupcakes) and hand-made dog treats – all crafted with local ingredients.

The cost is $100 per person with all proceeds for the benefit event will go to Morris and PAWS.
