||Join Us for a Night of Wine, Chocolate, & Support
||Manchester, NH — Rarely does a night of live music, chocolate fountains, and delicious wines directly improve the lives of stray, abused, and abandoned animals - but the Friends of the Manchester Animal Shelter (FMAS) are pleased to provide that and more! With tickets on sale now, FMAS invites you to attend their 5th Annual Wine & Chocolate Fundraiser, an exciting evening of wine, chocolate, live and silent auctions, and raffles – all to benefit the animals and the critical community programs offered through the shelter.
On Saturday, October 26, the Derryfield Country Club will once again transform into a space filled with animal lovers, shelter supporters, and community leaders uniting for the same goal – to give animals a better tomorrow. Silent auction and raffle items will be available for viewing and bidding beginning at 6:00pm in accompaniment to the flowing chocolate fountain, pouring of beverages, and the entertainment styling of the TZ Bop Band. Tickets are $30 each and are available online.
“The Wine & Chocolate Fundraiser is our premiere event,” mentioned Journey Ewell, Co-President of FMAS’ Board of Directors. “Raising critical funds for the animals in the shelter, we enjoy organizing and offering this exciting community event. Growing year after year, this year’s event features some of the most exciting and unique items we’ve ever had available for bidding. Open to the community, we’re encouraging all interested attendees get their tickets as soon as possible – we’re fortunate to expect a sold out evening.”
Adding to the excitement of the evening, the winner of FMAS’ FIAT Fundraiser will be chosen! One lucky raffle participant will walk away with a brand new FIAT 500 POP or $10,000 cash prize! FMAS is selling only 500 tickets for this raffle and they are available now at www.ManchesterAnimalShelter.org for only $75 each! The drawing is to be held near the conclusion of the evening. Although winner does not have to be present to win we encourage all to join in on the fun!
Proceeds from the evening, as well as the FIAT Fundraiser, go directly to the life-saving activities and programs provided by the Friends of the Manchester Animal Shelter. With over 250 animals in their direct care at any given time, funds raised help keep animals off the streets and into safety as they await their new loving homes.
