2nd annual Red, White & Beagle charity fundraiser
July 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join in for the 2nd annual Red, White & Beagle charity fundraiser at Barrel Oak Winery in Delaplane, Virginia on Sunday, July 17 from 1-4 p.m. This fundraiser will benefit the Beagle Freedom Project, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to give beagles and other animals used in laboratory testing a chance at life after research. Red, White & Beagle is hosted by what has come to be known as the Beagle Freedom Project’s DC7–a group of fosters and adopters who brought home 7 beagles from a rescue in Virginia in July 2013. You may remember seeing stories of the DC7 after these 7 beagles, named after our Founding Fathers, were released. They had all spent their whole lives in research labs and had never walked on grass, marked a fire hydrant or played in a park! They are now living all around the East Coast, and it’s amazing the progress they’ve made in less than three years.
This summer’s event will include wine tastings, tasty vegan snacks, a silent auction, raffle, and swag bag giveaways for humans and pups. Barrel Oak Winery is dog-friendly and a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon. Come mingle with the DC7 beagles and the Beagle Freedom Project, and learn more about the organization, celebrate our successes and help us achieve new ones.
