SPCA of Texas devotees gathered at Cork Wine Bar for a wine and cheese tasting party to kick off the upcoming Paws Cause "Goes Hollywoof" benefit on March 3. The Paws Cause event supports the SPCA's Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic, which provides more than 12,000 free and low-cost surgeries and 15,000 health and wellness treatments to dogs and cats in need.
At the cheese-and-wine filled fete, SPCA of Texas president James Bias and co-hosts Sheryl Wood and Gwen Echols thanked the sponsors and donors in attendance for their generosity. There was also chatter about what to expect at Sambuca for the springtime fete, and our ears perked when we heard about a "bone appetite" restaurant raffle, cork pull, silent auction and signature cocktails.
Seen on the scene: Rebecca Belew; Diane and Hal Brierly; Debbie Ingram; Tracie and Mike Wortley; Susan Baten; and Paws Cause 2013 co-chairs Jane Arrington, Cassie Evans and Andie Comini.
