Meetup Description: I'm not sure yet if I can attend this, so I'll leave as a Heads Up! for now - unless someone wants to step in as the contact person for the event. All this means is you would be at the event, arrive on time and you'd be the person people looked for.

As always, a Heads Up! is information about an event you may be interested in, not an official meetup.

I just heard about this event and it sounds fun. There is wine, an auction and music - all while benefiting a great local rescue group. The $20 entrance fee (if in advance, $25 at the door) is tax deductible, if allowed by your tax situation.
