Gourmet vegetarian hors d’oeuvres and desserts, donated by area restaurants, complement each wine selection.

The event also features the Taste of Compassion Silent Auction. Local businesses and individuals have been extremely generous in donating exciting auction items this year including a Vintage Jaguar car, antique furniture, vacations, rounds of golf, shopping sprees, spa treatments and more.

Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door and are available at Pet Harmony,ACN’s pet store for rescued pets, at 803 Fairview Street, off Hendersonville Road, next to Province 620. Tickets are also available online at www.animalcompassionnetwork.org Credit and debit cards accepted.

All proceeds fund Animal Compassion Network’s Foster/Adoption Program, which transfers animals out of local shelters and places them in foster care until they are adopted into loving, responsible new homes.
