2010 Pinot & Pups

2010 Pinot & Pups

On Saturday, May 15, Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) hosted its third annual Pinot & Pups Wine Gala. Approximately 250 people attended and an estimated $200,500 was raised to help offset the costs of training students who are blind with their new guide dogs at the Oregon campus in Boring.

 GDB Graduate Jay Harris with guide dog Tula served as the keynote speaker of the event. Guests enjoyed a gourmet dinner by Salvador Molly's Vibrant Table Catering, wine tastings, a silent auction and a spirited live auction with auctioneer Jim Fiolek. Guests also cuddled with adorable puppies during the event.

Established in 1942, GDB provides enhanced mobility and quality of life to people who are blind through lifetime partnerships with guide dogs. This nonprofit organization, located in Boring and San Rafael, Calif., is the largest school of its kind and has produced more than 11,000 partnerships across the United States and Canada. Services are offered entirely free of charge.
