Wine tasting, silent auction to aid Aroostook County animal shelter


PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Momentum Aroostook and Friends of Central Aroostook Humane Society are joining forces with Freddy P’s and Maine-based Winterport Winery to present “A Toast for the Animals.”

The event will feature wine tasting and a silent auction 6:30-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, at Freddy P’s in downtown Presque Isle.

Tickets are $10 each, and proceeds will benefit the Central Aroostook Humane Society.

A ticket will provide the participant four wine samples and an opportunity to learn from representatives of Winterport Winery about different wines and how to pair them.

The silent auction will include several items, such as artwork, framed photographs, crafts and gift certificates. The evening’s featured item is a DateNight package that includes dinner for two at The Crow’s Nest restaurant, a gift basket from 22 Vodka and one night’s stay at the Hampton Inn.

“Donations to the humane society have been down this year due to the tough economy,” Friends group coordinator Hollie Gowen said.

“We’re hoping that a fun event like this will both help with that shortfall and be a chance for people to support the shelter while having a good time.”

Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Central Aroostook Humane Society, Freddy P’s or by calling Hollie Gowen at 760-6359.
