Eldchrist Winery, located at 8189 State Route 736 in Plain City, has kindly agreed to host a Fall CAT-illion to benefit Black and Orange on Saturday, November 6 from 7-11 pm (there is no OSU football game that day, so no reason to hold back). Tickets for the CAT-illion are now available.
Tickets are $40 per person or $75 for a couple. Included in the ticket price are unlimited wine by the glass, soft drinks, coffee, and tea, as well as hors d’oeuvres and entertainment by local musicians, 2nd Story Acoustic.
Since the Winery cats, B and Mittens, are white, the hors d’oeuvres will feature a white theme: a gourmet mashed potato bar, white pizza, white cheeses and crackers, white gourmet cookies, and a white chocolate fondue with fruits for dipping.
B and Mittens are the kitties that are featured on the label of Kitten’s Kiss Wine. These two went through a Black and Orange clinic to get neutered and vaccinated. Thus, to thank Black and Orange, the Winery has graciously offered to conduct this classy fundraiser. Don’t forget, B and O also gets a portion of the proceeds from each bottle of Kitten’s Kiss wine sold.
Besides everything that Eldchrist Winery has planned, we also plan to have Christmas gift items and baskets for sale during the event. Additionally, a good friend of ours, Libby Sparks, will do tarot card readings for a donation. She is planning to spend about 15 minutes per person and felt a $15 donation would be suitable for her time.
My cousin, Jeremy Blanton, and his girlfriend, Heidi Boles, both licensed massage therapists, will be offering five to ten minute mini neck and shoulder massages for a donation, as well.
We also had four 1-Day Park Hopper tickets for Walt Disney World in Florida donated to us by Walt Disney theme parks. These tickets, valued at $136 per pass or $544 for all four tickets, will be auctioned off in a silent auction.
We plan to have a lot of fun, so if you want to come, get your tickets now. The Winery can only hold 50 people per fire code, so Eldchrist will be selling around 50 tickets for the evening. If you would like tickets, you can purchase them by credit card by calling the Winery at (614) 874-6240. You can also stop in while they are open on Fridays from 6 pm to 9 pm and Saturdays from 2 pm to 8 pm.
Additionally, we have tickets for sale through Black and Orange. You can come by Plain City Druggist, 480 South Jefferson Avenue (across from Der Dutchman) in Plain City to buy your tickets from Robin or Joe. Plain City Druggist is open Monday to Friday 9 am-6 pm (closed for lunch from 1:15-2:15) and Saturdays 9 am to noon. We will also have tickets at our upcoming adoption events. You can also email us at email@example.com for more information. Eldchrist Winery will also have some tickets available to purchase at the door the night of the event.
