Thank You Thursday: Urban Grape Raises $1500 for ARL

Thank You Amelia Hughes, Urban Grape & Polka Dog Bakery

urban grape signThis past Saturday, the Urban Grape – a neighborhood wine store with locations in Boston’s South End and Chestnut Hill – held a B.Y.O.D. (Bring Your Own Dog) wine tasting event at their shops and donated 10% of Saturday’s sales to the Animal Rescue League of Boston. They raised $1500 for our shelter animals!

We’d like to extend a special thank you to Amelia Hughes, an extraordinarily generous volunteer and donor, and member of the ARL’s Board of Overseers, who was named Urban Grape’s customer of the month and selected the ARL as her charity of choice!

While humans were enjoying tasting various wines, Polka Dog Bakery was on site providing snacks of the canine-kind for all of the dogs in attendance. They generously donated all proceeds from treats purchased at the tasting to the ARL.

Thank you to everyone who helped support the animals at the ARL through this event! We are so very grateful to have such a wonderful community of supportive donors and businesses!

Marathon Team Fundraiser A Success!

Thank you to everyone who attended Friday’s Boston Marathon Fundraiser at the Granary Tavern in Boston. The event was a huge success and over 200 people stopped by to show their support. Our Boston Marathon team has collectively raised over $30,000 and runners are still collecting donations. Remember that the money that the team raises goes towards helping shelter animals.

To support this year’s four runners and view their progress, please visit their fundraising page. You can donate online to the entire team or a specific runner.
