Rundown on the event:

It's a charity event on July 17th (Saturday) 2021 at Fiorella's Event Center (address and map above) that will have 150+ different wines from all around the world for tasting, selected by a guy who is probably a little bit too into wine. All net proceeds will benefit the Rescue K-911 Foundation. It's a no-kill, foster animal rescue foundation that takes a bit more of a gentle approach and rehabilitates pets instead of tossing animals in tiny kennels until someone hopefully shows up.

 

There will be passed and light apps if you need something to nibble on, and Fiorella's will have a cash bar if you want something a bit different. There'll be a bit of wine, but sometimes a person needs a Gin & Tonic and anything purchased at the cash bar also helps pay for the event (yeah, food wine and space are surprisingly not free...). This leaves more to go to a great cause. It'll start at 2:00PM and end at 5:00PM, though I highly suggest getting in sooner. People will flock to the most popular wines, but with this many options, take your time. The week before the event, I'll be posting the full lineup if you want to plan out your approach. Also, feel free to email me with any questions, as I'm doing this because I think it's fun (the wine part and the helping dogs part...not the logistics...that has been educational).

VIP, what's that entail? A bit earlier access if you like to be an early bird, but it's really all about the VIP room. There'll be some top tier special selections there that are exclusive to VIP ticket holders. Some higher tier apps, too, but we all know you're here for the wine!

Raffle items & auctions! Might as well get some swag while you're sipping. This is a benefit event for the Rescue K-911 Foundation, helping pets recover and find homes. So all charity and raffle proceeds will help out a great cause. There's going to be some cool stuff there. Want to contribute? Please email me at zach@appellationkc.com, it'll help us greatly and also giving just feels good. I'll be posting contributors (with their consent) on the site and social media, along with some swag that we're getting.
