An Evening of Unleashing Ability

We are getting excited about this year’s Wine & Wags with the powerful speakers and video testimonials we have lined up. Weather permitting, we plan to have our reception on the deck level of the ballroom for guests to enjoy complimentary wine, drinks, and appetizers! In addition, one of our volunteers, Nick Carpenter, will be providing some wonderful background music.

PUPPY LOVE EVERYWHERE!

LOTS of puppies will be at this year’s event! The ICAN breeder dogs (and sire, Charger) have been busy providing us some beautiful puppies for our training program and the timing of Wine & Wags will allow them to get out and spread some puppy love to you and your guests! You will also have the opportunity to buy a premiere copy of our 20th Anniversary 2022 calendar – a limited edition (and expanded to 28 pages) featuring over 700 images – and get it paw-signed by the infamous Ambassador dogs, Monkey and Osiris!

ABOUT WINE & WAGS

Since 2002, ICAN has brought together dogs, offenders, and people living with disabilities to provide hope for more enriched and independent living.

To support ICAN’s irresistible mission, Wine and Wags has become the organization’s premier fundraiser. All net proceeds will support the upcoming year’s operations and programming.

Your contributing dollars will help bring independence for a person living with a disability; hope for the inmates who train them.

Wine & Wags is an after-work program that provides individuals and businesses the opportunity to learn more about Indiana Canine Assistant Network (ICAN). There is no cost to attend the program. Instead, money is raised through an ‘ask’ at the end of the program.

The evening takes place at the beautifully restored Biltwell Event Center. It begins with appetizers by Hoaglin Catering and Santorini’s Greek Kitchen, along with complimentary wine, beer, and soft drinks. You will have the opportunity to meet many of ICAN’s dogs and pups in training, purchase a copy of our 2022 ICAN calendar, and meet ICAN staff, volunteers, and board members. We will then have a 75-minute program in which testimonials will be shared by ICAN clients, former inmate handlers, and members of the community. The evening is inspirational.

We invite you to be a part of ICAN’s life-changing journey!

CONSIDER BEING A VIRTUAL HOST!

LOTS of great benefits are included in this sponsorship – a dog visit to your table or delivery to your home by a dog-in-training, wine and chocolate served to your guests, recognition of your support, and more! YOUR dollars will go towards helping ICAN meet its fundraising goal! Contact dino@icandog.org or call 317-672-3864.
