What could be better than enjoying a night of delicious local food, artisan wine, and craft beer? Experiencing this while helping rescue animals!
Eleventh Hour Rescue today announced their plans to host Pours for Paws: Taste of Morris County for Food, Wine, and Beer Lovers on Wednesday, May 15th, 2013 from 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm at the beautiful Meadow Wood Manor in Randolph, NJ. This event will benefit the rescue’s Building Hope project, which aims to raise funds to construct a new, permanent kennel to house some of the over 2,000 animals Eleventh Hour Rescue saves from death row every year. In addition to officially kicking off the capital fundraising efforts, Pours for Paws will also celebrate the success and support of local restaurants and vendors.
This celebration will bring together 20-25 of the top restaurants in Morris County, each offering a wide array of incredible tapas-style bites for guests to enjoy. Participating restaurants include Morris Tap & Grill, Nicole’s 10, and Ava’s Cupcakes with many more to be announced soon. The event will feature fine wines from around the world with varietals hailing from Italy, South America, and the United States. Craft beer from US and international microbreweries and special brews from New Jersey will also be featured.
Guests will enjoy a stylish evening accompanied by the melodic harmonies of JT Rooney and Glen Korzin, as well as Angie Stierch.
Pours for Paws is the first official event aiming to raise funds for Eleventh Hour Rescue’s Building Hope project. Building Hope is the effort to fund and construct a new kennel to be a permanent home base for the organization and their adoptable animals. Over the last few years, Eleventh Hour Rescue has been leasing a kennel facility to house some of the animals in our care and it is currently on the market to be sold. “I lie awake at night worrying about the day that it does sell, where am I going to put all these lives we have committed to saving?” states Linda Schiller, Volunteer President and Founder. Another issue is that the facility is old and run down. Some of the kennel runs are so beyond repair that it has rendered them useless. Schiller continues; “To me, an empty kennel run is a life that could have been saved and that is unacceptable. It’s time to open new doors to our own home, to secure the future for our animals and save more lives.”
The goal of Building Hope is to create a comfortable haven and a place of hope. Cold concrete and chain link enclosures are a thing of the past. Specifically designed with our dogs in mind, the modern state of the art facility will be a healthier environment both physically and mentally. Equipped with heated floors for comfort and ease of cleaning, solid enclosures and sound proofing to reduce stress, sound, and airborne illness. Eleventh Hour Rescue has already purchased land and buildings in Mount Olive on Route 46 and the organization is excited to kick-off the first big Building Hope fundraiser. Building Hope aims to raise $1.5 million to create this new home.
Pre-sale tickets are available for purchase now at a cost of $85 per person. Tickets may be available at the door for $95 per person.
