Come visit us at our events!

art and wine on the mountain

Come join fellow pet lovers and enjoy an afternoon filled with art, music, wine, food and celebration at a private estate on Mount Madonna overlooking the Monterey Bay!  Local artists will be on-site to display beautiful, animal centric art pieces and photography.  Central coast wineries will be pouring delectable wines and an array of delicious small bites and appetizers will be plentiful. 

This event will feature incredible silent auction items and all proceeds will benefit BirchBark Foundation's mission to help pets and their families through medical crises.  BirchBark relies on the generosity of our community and this event is a great way to celebrate our donors and learn about our recent success stories.  Dr. Merrianne Burtch, Founder and President of BirchBark, will talk about our mission and introduce one of our grant recipients who will share their story about their amazing pet.

Space is limited so get your tickets early!  Sorry, no pets at this event.

Saturday September 29th, 3 - 6 PM

Cost: $95
