Mr. Buehrle is a supporter of Hope Animal Rescues in Alton, IL. He was at a fundraiser this past weekend for Hope. It was a wine and beer tasting event (surprised to hear Bambi was at a wine-tasting event?). For a donation (100% of which went to Hope Rescues), one could get a picture with Mark Buehrle, have him sign it, and/or have him sign a bottle of wine. So we did all three.
Wish you'd been there? Or do you wish there was a winey way you could support Hope? Well, you can order your very own bottle of Mark Buehrle's wine. It won't be signed, but the proceeds go to Hope Rescues.There's a link on Hope's website.
And I like to mention that the event was at the Grafton Winery. Mike and Lori, the owners of the winery, donated the space for the event and also donated 10% of wine sales during the event to Hope Rescues. It's a really cool place. If you are in the St. Louis area, you should check it out.
