Help the Animals - Come to My Wine Tasting Fundraiser!

Thursday, August 19, 2010, 7-9 pm. Winetasting Benefit for the Wiggle Waggle Walk!

Come to the Colorado Wine Company for a fun evening. For $20, you get a flight of wine, hors d'ouevres, and donate to the animals! There will also be a raffle with prizes from local businesses. Meet and greet! See and be seen!

I am proud to be raising money for the animals at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA (PHS). PHS cares for more than 12,000 animals a year by providing food, shelter, veterinary care, adoptions, reunification and so much more. Times are tough, and the animals need our help. Please help me to help them by making a generous donation today. I especially like their goal of no euthanization for homeless animals everywhere. You can donate directly here, or in person at my fundraiser this Thursday!

The animals can't express their gratitude themselves, so I will do it for them. THANK YOU!

If you would like to do even more, you can sign up to join me and more than 1,000 dogs for the Wiggle Waggle Walk on September 26. It will be a wonderful day.

Fresh and Easy Donating to Local Groups

Love it or hate it, Fresh and Easy has been taking Southern California by storm.  In the last year Tesco has opened over 30 Fresh and Easy locations in the Los Angeles area offering "a simple shopping experience with everything you need right in the neighborhood."

Besides budget prices for quality products, Fresh and Easy is also billing itself as the "good neighbor," recruiting from the local area and using low-energy lighting and equipment.

As part of being a good neighbor, Fresh and Easy is offering a $1,000 donation to a group from the neighborhood where a store is being opened or celebrating its one-year anniversary.  Anyone from the neigbhorhood can nominate a group on the Fresh and Easy website, which you can reach by clicking here.  Recent donations include high school football teams, children's theater groups, and wildlife organizations.

Here is what Fresh and Easy says:

"When we first opened your store, we invited you and your neighbors to nominate a non-profit group from the local community. From these nominations, the store staff selected a charity to receive a $1,000 donation.

We do this with every store we open because we care about our neighborhoods and the people who live there.

As stores reach their one-year anniversary, we are doing it again. Anyone can nominate a local neighborhood group and the store will decide who receives another donation. It is just another way for us to say "thank you" for your support."

Do you know of a group in the Eagle Rock/Highland Park/Glassell Park area that could use $1,000?  Go online and take advantage of Fresh and Easy's good neighbor policy!
