If you love dogs and cats, this is a good cause. The RichmondSPCA.org is a no kill shelter for abandoned animals. I'm on their Board. I want to raise money for them. My own life is all about wine, my career, my philosophy, my passion, everything, it has been a daily beverage for me for the past 33 years. Everyone knows that I couldn't imagine a meal without wine or beer! I have some major wine related events coming up, with my favorite Chateau Musar and Badenhorst wineries, so temptation is going to be massive! As a challenge, I've stopped drinking wine, and any other alcohol, for 14 days to raise money for the RichmondSPCA. I'm not an alcoholic but this pledge is akin to running a marathon! The first four pledges on my FB brought in $400. These friends don't think I can do it, or just want to torture me! So, if you care for dogs and cats, why not make a pledge. It is a fantastic cause. Oh, and when I hand the money to the RichmondSPCA, I can ask them to send you a tax receipt. Thank you for your generosity!
