Canines, Cats, and Cabernet


The Corinne T. Smith Animal Center’s signature fundraiser, Canines, Cats, and Cabernet, is coming right up. In addition to raising much needed money to care for our homeless dogs and cats, it’s just a lot of fun. As always, there will be great food, wine and beers selected by Leona Cleveland, a raffle, a live auction, and even a new twist or two. Canines, Cats, and Cabernet will be
March 21, beginning at 6pm. The planning committee is working hard to make it a great success.

Generous people and businesses are lining up to help. Our first sponsor check came in the mail today…thank you Citizens National Bank. Steves’ Market and Deli and CRcatering by Casey Rowlett were, as always, the first to step up to furnish their delicious food at the event. James Cleveland will have his grill at the side door, sending all kinds of sumptuous smells wafting in the breeze. Brennan’s Vineyard will be pouring their own delicious wines. San Saba Olive Oil will have their wares available to sample and purchase.

I will have more information very soon. If anyone is interested in participating as a food vendor, or in donating an item for auction or raffle, give me a call at 325-642-1755. Even though those things are all done as donations to our shelter, we try to spread the joy, and give a little advertising for the businesses in the community that are so generous in helping.

So, mark your calendar…Canines, Cats, and Cabernet, at the Depot Cultural Center, 6pm on March 21. Don’t miss the fun.
