Howl-O-Wine 2019 will be Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 4 to 8 pm at Friends Uncorked in Friendswood. A howl of a great time is being planned for a Spooktacular event.
It all benefits Starlight Outreach and Rescue for animals
Events include pet costume contest, professional photos, wine pull, silent auction and Starlight SWAG.
Humans must be 21 or older to attend the event.
Starlight Outreach and Rescue (S.O.A.R.), a 501c3 nonprofit organization, started with a small group of volunteers who wanted to support the efforts of Houston-area shelters to provide a better quality of life for stray and abandoned animals, medical attention beyond the scope/capabilities of the facilities, and fostering and rescue services for animals with special needs.
The organization is named in honor of Emma Starlight Hyde who was just 14 years old when she passed away unexpectedly in October 2017. Emma and her mom Shelley, with the support of their family, volunteered at shelter events, such as the annual Shelter Dog Birthday Party, and fostered baby kittens to ensure they received proper socialization and feeding during the weaning period
“Emma’s bright and caring spirit continues on in this organization, lighting the way for stray and abandoned pets to find their way to their forever homes,” founder Amy Castro said.
Friends Uncorked is located at 111 S. Friendswood Drive.
