Thank you Brian and Sharon and everyone at Barrel Oak Winery for sponsoring a fund raiser in Mina’s memory to benefit Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary. I could not have managed this without the kind people at BOW, my friends at the sanctuary, my friends at Masons Keepe whh my friend Deb who’s blogged about Mina and took great pictures of my little girl, and all my friends who are going to meet us at BOW and buy wine and celebrate my beloved’s life.

TIME: 2-5 p.m.
DATE: Sunday, December 13, 2009
PLACE: Barrel Oak Winery in Delaplane, Virginia – Directions to the winery

Barrel Oak will donate 10 percent of all sales of Bowhaus Red wine, Bowhaus White wine, and their awesome sangria to Poplar Spring on the above date and time! I’m determined to get as many people there as possible so if you’re in the National Capital Area, PLEASE COME! We’ll have a table set up for cash donations and brochures from the sanctuary and some vegan treats and photos of Mina at BOW and the sanctuary.

Mina protected me and loved me and took care of me for 13 years. I can never repay her for all that she’s given me, so I want to spend the rest of my life doing whatever I can for non-human animals to honor Mina’s life. This is a nice start.
