Pop open some fun and check out Paws Uncorked on 4/27!

Since 1962, PAWS (Pet Animal Welfare Society) has been rescuing and protecting our furry friends here in Connecticut.  Whether it’s rescuing and finding homes for homeless cats or dogs, or rescuing dogs from pounds where they’d be euthanized, PAWS is there to serve and protect.  In addition to all of this, they also host many adoption events, classes, and do even more for animals and the community.  Because PAWS is a non-profit and they do all these great things, of course they need funding and they do have great supporters…but every little bit helps.

Speaking of helping, check out PAWS Uncorked:  A Taste for Rescue on 4/27 from 5-8 pm at the Stamford Marriott!  Tickets are $45 in advance (buy them here) or $55 at the door.  A ticket gets you nomworthy tastings of food and drinks, a chance to shop around at vendors, and a shot at winning some great silent auction items.

Load up on Chocolates, Sweets, Drinks, + More to Benefit Shelter for the Homeless

19 Jan


You probably heard us talking about the Chocolate World Expo being held on 1/27, but didn’t you know that the love of chocolate and all things sweet never end?  Yes, it’s true!  Even if you filled up on chocolate then, by the time 2/7 comes along for the Chocolate, Dessert, & Wine Lover’s Evening you’ll be ready for some more!

Now, look at this line up of chocolate crammers, cupcake creators, sweets sharers, and drink dabblers!  You’ll also notice from the lineup that there will be a Valentine Gift Boutique where you can purchase some non-sweet goodies for your little pooh bear.  This all goes down on February 7 from 6-9 pm at the Stamford Marriott as part of the Chocolate, Dessert, & Wine Lover’s Evening to raise money for Shelter for the Homeless.  Tickets are just $45 if you buy tickets on or before 2/6 or will be $50 when you buy them on the day of the event.  Either way, all of the money is going to help out Shelter for the Homeless, so you’ll definitely want to get your tickets.  Plus, you can look forward to auctions, live music, raffles, and lots more.  Here are all the great food and drinks that will be available, plus we’re adding in the stores that will be a part of the boutique.  Ciao.
