Get Tipsy and Benefit Homeless Animals
Sip wine and save pets in need with thousands of local wine lovers who are raising their glasses for homeless animals. Kirkland Uncorked is Washington’s premier summer wine festival, is officially returning July 14, 15, and 16 for their 11th annual celebration. More than 70 world-class Washington wineries and local foods will be featured, including Woodinville’s Homeward Pet Adoption Center, one of the state’s preeminent nonprofit, no-kill animal shelters.
Homeward Pet helps four-legged friends from all over Seattle find new, loving fur-ever homes. Their mission: give homeless animals a second chance through rescue, shelter, and adoption programs. Since being founded 27 years ago, Homeward Pet has matched more than 28,000 fur-balls with forever families that will provide them with the love and comfort they desire. This would not be possible without all the generous support from donors and 350+ volunteers who dedicate their time to caring and placing more than 1,600 cats and dogs.
Washington state is home to more than 350 grape growers and produces nearly 220,000 tons of grapes annually. Many of State’s finest wineries will share their varietals, including a 21+ tasting garden with sampling of 70 Washington wines, a craft market, live music, restaurant tastings, and so much more.
The three-day celebration is being held along the Lake Washington shore in gorgeous Marina Park, where guests can enjoy delicious samples from Eastside restaurants, a Friday Burger Brawl, and Saturday Food Truck Feast. Sip responsibly on reds, whites, and craft brews certified to refresh your palette at this exclusive event. Drink for a cause and support an organization aimed at giving cats and dogs a PAWSitive future.
