Wine and dine to help local animal rescue
Animal Education and Rescue will host a Wine & Dine Summer Fundraiser from 4-7 p.m. Saturday, July 31, at Old School Forest Preserve in Libertyville.
The event includes a vegetarian/vegan catered meal, wine tasting, raffle baskets and fellowship with animal lovers. Proceeds benefit AEAR, a foster-based rescue for homeless pets including dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs and other domestic animals who are waiting for their forever families.
Old School Forest Preserve is at 78285 N. Saint Mary's Road, Libertyville. The event will be held in Shelter D.
The $40 per person cost includes the meal and wine tasting (must be 21 to participate in wine tasting). For more information or to register, go to aear.org.
Funds raised will help animals like Lady, a 1-year-old female retriever mix who is very friendly, and Squeaky, an affectionate 2-year-old female tabby cat who loves to entertain her foster family.
