Pups in Tuxes to Strut the Red Carpet at The Wine Pub on August 14
Local restaurant to donate event proceeds to Canine Companions for Independence
SAN DIEGO, July 5, 2016— Very Important Pooches (VIPs) of San Diego: it’s time to prepare for the go-to doggie event of the year at The Wine Pub, which raises funds for Canine Companions for Independence.
On Saturday, August 14, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., The Wine Pub will roll out the red carpet (literally) and paparazzi will photograph dozens of San Diego’s socialite pups and their humans. Four-legged friends in tuxes and dresses will enjoy an evening of pampering at The Pub, complete with bottle-bowl service and gourmet doggie treats, including dishes of chicken and wild rice, “pupsicles” and homemade, all-natural dog treats.
“As a puppy owner, I know exactly how much joy four-legged friends bring into our lives,” said Sandy Hanshaw, owner of The Wine Pub. “Our patio is dog-friendly all year round, but for one day we wanted to give our pups center stage and raise money for a local organization that pairs people with disabilities with loyal and loving companions.”
The Oceanside-based organization, Canine Companions for Independence, enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure life-saving human-pup partnerships, free of charge. The Wine Pub chose Canine Companions as its 2016 Woofer Wednesday beneficiary and has donated $250 to date by encouraging customers to dine in with their dogs every Wednesday and giving 10 percent of each check to the dog-friendly nonprofit.
No tickets are required for the VIP event – just a fancy dress code.
