Join Eldchrist Winery, Saturday, November 6, For a Fundraiser For Black and Orange Cat Foundation.

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 Cat Foundation 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. 

As many of you know, Black and Orange Cat Foundation is a charity that is very near and dear to my heart. My sister and I started the organization in 2006 to raise money to help spay and neuter Plain City area cats. Our good friend, Carol Gaul, joined in and soon our group was helping cats in Madison and Union Counties. 

Tickets for this fundraiser 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. 

Here are other exciting things happening at the CAT-illion:

Christmas items: Besides everything that Eldchrist Winery has planned, Black and Orange Cat Foundation also plans to have homemade Christmas gift items, cards, and baskets for sale during the event, as well as pet themed items and B and O t-shirts.

Tarot Card Readings: Additionally, a good friend of ours, Libby Sparks, wife of Ernie Sparks, who donated the Mini Cooper to B and O, 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. 

Mini-Massages: Jeremy Blanton (our cousin) and Heidi Boles (our soon-to-be cousin–we hope!), both licensed massage therapists, will be offering five to ten minute mini neck and shoulder massages for a donation, as well. 

Silent Auction: There are four 1-Day Park Hopper tickets for Walt Disney World in Florida available. These were donated to B and O 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.

Mini Cooper Raffle: Black and Orange Cat Foundation is also raffling off a 2003 Mini Cooper S car. The car will be available to look at during the Winery event. Tickets are $50 and the group is selling a minimum of 200 tickets to help them raise money. A drawing will be held for the car on December 15 if 200 tickets have been sold. You can buy your raffle tickets the night of the event or stop in the pharmacy for more info and to purchase a ticket.

Black and Orange Cat Foundation and all those in attendance 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 for the Fall CAT-illion. Just stop by the pharmacy when we are open. Eldchrist Winery will also have some tickets available to purchase at the door the night of the event.
