NEW YORK, N.Y. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: Wigglebutt Warriors has announced Wigglebutts Uncorked, a pet-friendly fundraising gala to benefit non-profit Second Chance Rescue NYC, whose mission is to facilitate the adoption of animals that have been abandoned by their former owners.
On the heels of 2013’s Wigglebutt Wedding and 2014’s Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof, Fidose of Reality founders Carol and Darlene Bryant are once again rolling out the red carpet for rescue dogs. The Brotherhood Winery in Washingtonville, New York will host the event in The Grand Monarque Hall, an early 19th-century building with towering ceilings and antique wrought-iron chandeliers – under which there will be hors d’oeuvres, a dinner buffet, dancing, prizes, a silent auction, and the first-ever Wigglebutts Got Talent Show.
An open call went out in March seeking a U.S.-based 501(c)3 dog rescue group as the benefactor of Wigglebutts Uncorked. “We closely read through the stories of dogs in need of forever homes,” says co-founder Carol Bryant. “In a perfect world, Wigglebutt Warriors would fundraise for all dogs in need. It was no easy task, but ultimately we are happy to report that the group who will benefit from Wigglebutts Uncorked is Second Chance Rescue.”
Jennifer Brooks founded Second Chance Rescue in 2009 on the firm belief that all animals deserve to be loved and cared for. Their mission is to rehabilitate and re-home animals that have been abandoned or neglected by their former owners – many of which have serious medical issues and/or are on “death row” at municipal shelters – and are 100 percent not-for-profit.
Said Bryant, “We are so excited to work with this dynamo who loves dogs!”
“We are so honored to have been chosen out of the many other wonderful rescue organizations as the recipient of the Wigglebutt fundraiser,” says Jennifer Brooks, president and founder of Second Chance Rescue NYC. “It is our hope to raise much needed funds to continue our endeavor in saving many deserving animals – as well as use this opportunity to spread awareness and educate the public on the plight of animals in this city, let alone the country. This will be a beautiful and historical evening.”
Wigglebutts Uncorked will take place on Saturday, April 16, 2016, from 6-10 p.m. The attire is dressy and well-behaved dogs are welcome.
