Raising glasses raises $2,400

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Nearly two dozen animal lovers gathered recently to celebrate autumn by raising a glass… okay, several glasses, but everyone was responsible and it was for the benefit of animals in need.

Nutmeg Animal Welfare hosted its first-ever fundraiser, a wine-tasting event at Gasbarro’s Wines on historic Federal Hill in Providence on Friday, October 28, 2016. We caught up with old friends and made a few new ones in the process.

Between attendees and supporters who couldn’t attend, but donated online, Nutmeg raised $2,400! The response from those in attendance was overwhelmingly positive, so much so that we’ve decided to make it an annual event!

In the meantime, we’re already planning our next fun fundraiser, something for the spring or early summer.
