Beverly Animal Shelter

This event is extra special in that it is a benefit for the local Beverly Animal Shelter! Meet and shake paws with some of their very adorable and loveable adoptable pets! Talk to the shelter’s volunteers about what you can do to help or better yet, bring some supplies with you to donate to their shelter (check their website for a list of what they need).  We’ll also have a beautiful wine basket raffle for you to try to win, all of the proceeds are donated to the shelter!

 

Wine, Wine Slushies, BBQ Food & MORE!

Admission for this event is free, but feel free to come hungry as Thurston’s BBQ will be here serving up their delicious chicken spiedies, pulled pork and more, complete with all the sides & fixin’s you could ask for! We’ll also have wine by the glass and bottle, along with our infamous wine slushies available for purchase as our tiki stand! (No outside alcohol is permitted)
