AARF’s 9th Annual Whine and Cheese Live Auction will be Friday, June 23

AARF’s 9th Annual Whine and Cheese Live Auction will be held on Friday, June 23, from 6–10 p.m. at Glen Acres Golf and Country Club:

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and there are some really great things in the works for this years event! Enjoy a selection of wine, beer, cider and hors d’oeuvres, while bidding on amazing auction items. All proceeds go to support the rescue and aid work that AARF does.

Tickets are $40 in advance, $50 at the door. They can be purchased at www.myaarf.org. Ticket price includes 2 drink tickets, hors d’oeuvres, and a commemorative 9th annual Whine and Cheese wine glass for the first 50 people to purchase tickets in advance.

AARF is a local all volunteer 501(c)3 organization, founded in 2007. Our mission is to work alongside individuals, local rescue groups, animal shelters and other organizations to help preserve and care for all animals. We provide pet food to local food banks and help low income individuals with vet costs. Our Angel Fund is designed to help those in our community that are faced with the stress of having large or unexpected bills or to just help with the basics.

While we continue our work locally, in the last several years AARF began working with rescues in Louisiana and Texas to pull dogs from high kill shelters and find them forever homes in the Pacific Northwest. Since 80% of the dogs in these rural shelters are euthanized, we have put in place a very low cost spay/neuter program targeting people that surrender dogs and puppies to the shelter as well as anyone else that needs help with this. Ninety-six cents out of every dollar we raise goes directly to the animals.

Highline High School’s Key Club’s ‘Run to Fund’ is Saturday

Heads up, Burien – Highline High School’s Key Club’s Run to Fund is happening Saturday, June 24 at Highline Memorial Stadium:

Join us, Sweet Breeze ice cream, and your fellow community members (children and adults) in a 5k fun run for a good cause!

We’re dedicating this event to funding children’s cancer research. That said, over half of the proceeds from this event will go towards the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program (KCCP). Our goal is to donate at least $2,000!

In addition to admission, each $15 ticket comes with:

  • A voucher for a free scoop of ice cream from Sweet Breeze
  • A ticket to enter a raffle with prizes from local shops and restaurants, such as Collins Chiropractic and the Greek House
  • A free pin, and
  • An opportunity to participate in fun activities

Sweet Breeze will also donate half of their earnings from this day towards KCCP, so also feel free to visit their shop after the run to try our very own Pirate Cookie flavor, made in honor of this event!
