STHS Fine Wines For Canines Recap

Published by:

Covington, LA – On Friday, January 12, 2018, Annadele’s Plantation hosted the 7th annual Fine Wines for Canines charity dinner and wine pairing to benefit the homeless animals of St. Tammany Humane Society, a No-Kill Animal Shelter in St. Tammany Parish.

The reserved seating dinner was centered around a five-course tasting handcrafted by Chef Bonnette, each course specifically paired with a glass of wine. Attendees began with a cash bar and silent auction before dinner, raising even more funds for the homeless animals of STHS.

The most exciting part of the evening came when local supporter, Mark Lewis, presented to STHS the first four acres of a 12-acre lot to be donated to the no-kill rescue. The 12 acres is located on Harrison Ave., not far from the current location of St. Tammany Humane Society. The independent, no-kill animal rescue and community veterinary clinic plans this area will be the future location of a band new facility.
“We are excited to begin this first step in our journey to help more homeless animals in our community. This donation symbolizes a promising future for our organization and the animals we will serve,” commented St. Tammany Humane Society CEO, Scott Bernier.
The St. Tammany Humane Society would like to thank Annadele’s Plantation and their staff for a lovely evening of delicious food and drinks as well as to the supporters who attended the event. This fundraiser is a testament to the support and generosity of our community and STHS couldn’t be more grateful! sthumane.org
