Waggin' and Winin' in Mount Holly

by Press Release | Aug 31, 2008
Waggin' and Winin' in Mount Holly A spectacular late summer afternoon, full of wine, art, and music, spent with your best friend. It doesn’t get any better than this, when Mount Holly’s Mill Race Village Arts and Preservation presents “Waggin’ and Winin,” a fund-raiser for the Burlington County Animal Alliance (BCAA) on September 13.

"Paws, Sip & Listen!" Sip the wine, hear the music, enjoy the art and meet some beautiful pets looking for loving homes, all in Mount Holly’s uniquely artistic Mill Race Village. From 3-7 pm at Church and White Streets in Mount Holly, all are invited to raise their glasses to arts and animals and tap their feet to super sounds of local musicians, the Estro-Genies and Mid-life Crisis.

If you are looking for a new best friend, this is the place to be, as BCAA volunteers will be on site with pets looking for new homes and information on adopting. If you already have a dog, you are welcome to bring your pooch to pet-friendly Mill Race Village, where you both can dine on the patio of the Robins Nest restaurant. Art by local artisans will be available for sale and auction, including paintings and jewelry.

Many area restaurants and businesses are supporting the event including the Robins Nest, Silver Lining, Red, White and Brew, Charlie’s Other Brother, Petsmart, and Pets Plus. Wine is being provided by Heck Estates, distributors of popular brands such as Kenwood and Valley of the Moon. Beer is being donated by Hunterdon Distributors.

Mill Race Village Arts and Preservation is asking you to raise your glass as you raise your awareness to the plight of homeless animals in our area. Burlington County Animal Alliance is a private, nonprofit animal advocacy group, focusing primarily on rescue and adoption of shelter dogs and cats from the Burlington County Animal Shelter Center. BCAA has been saving homeless animals in Burlington County since 1999 and has saved thousands of animals, who may have otherwise been euthanized.

At any given time, BCAA has nearly eighty pets in the foster homes of its volunteers. BCAA actively seeks homes for Burlington County’s homeless animals by posting them on their website at www.bcaaofnj.org, part of the nation-wide www.petfinders.org network. BCAA strongly advocates neutering and adoptions through rescue to quell the tragic overpopulation of homeless animals. All of their foster pets are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Support animals and the arts on Saturday, September 13 from 3 to 7 pm. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 day of the event. They are available at Red white and Brew, 33 High Street, Mount Holly and Silver Lining, 5 Church Street in Mount Holly. Tickets can also be purchased at www.MillRaceVillage.com.
