The Power of Community

Never underestimate the power of one individual or company to do good! Our local supporters have had amazing success with fundraisers for Napa Humane this spring. Our community’s power is exponential!
In April, Jessup Cellars raffled off ONE magnum of library wine and raised enough money for us to offer spay/neuter and treatment for NINE community cats! The talented chef team from Bounty Hunter Smokin’ BBQ also competed on behalf of Napa Humane at the HALL Cabernet Cookoff and won the People’s Choice Runner-Up prize. The money raised from that event will enable us to provide THREE community wellness clinics for Napa’s neediest pets!
In May, Provenance Vineyards drew an amazing turnout (especially given the unseasonable rain) for their Paws for the Cause party, where all ticket sales benefited Napa Humane. Also in May, we were honored to be one of the very first non-profits considered by 100 Kids Who Care – a new philanthropic organization of Napa County youths who want to donate to important local causes – and we won their votes (along with Be Kind) to receive the kids’ $10 donations!
Regardless of the dollar amounts raised, every single one of these events helped raise community awareness of who we are and what we do…which means an even bigger, stronger base of supporters for the future. THANK YOU Jessup, Bounty Hunter, HALL, Provenance and 100 Kids!
If you missed our spring events, no worries – there’s more on the horizon for summer, thanks to our amazing community! Napa Valley knows how to put the fun in fundraising, so mark your calendars for these upcoming events – all benefiting our life-saving services!
Wednesday, June 12, 4:00-7:30 PM at Clif Family Winery.
Join Clif Family for a dog-friendly evening with 20% of sales going to Napa Humane. They’ll be featuring their small-production wines along with an exciting Punjabi-themed menu of bites from their famous Bruschetteria Food Truck. Every menu item can be made vegetarian or gluten-free!
Friday, July 12, 5-7 PM at Starmont Winery.
Starmont is raffling off TWO magnums of Napa Valley wine (2012 Starmont Cab and 2013 Forward Kidd) to one lucky winner at their July Starmont Social! Raffle tickets (available in their tasting room now!) are just $5 each, and all proceeds will benefit Napa Humane. Join us at the winery with your pup on Friday, July 12, when the winning ticket will be drawn, and delicious Starmont wines and paella by Zuzu will be available for purchase. You need not be present at the drawing to win, but what’s not to love about paella on the patio??
Thank you to all our sponsors and supporters!
