Calendar of Events
For 20 years, the ESPCA Food, Wine and Beer Festival has been a staple in Enid and the major fundraiser for the ESPCA. This fundraiser literally allows us to continue our life-saving work during the lean, high-need summer months. Sadly, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to host a successful event using that format. Yet the need to raise money remains to ensure we can continue our mission serving the animals in our community.
Even if it were safe to gather 500-600 people in a single location, our local businesses have suffered and we can’t ask them to give in the manner they usually do. After much consideration, we are reinventing this year’s fundraiser to what we’re calling the ESPCA Food, Wine and Beer Un-Festival. This year’s fundraising event will be to create a “Paw-liday” Gift & Fun Guide.
What you will find inside this “Paw-liday” Gift & Fun Guide is a celebration of local businesses, retailers, and service providers. All of these businesses give so much to our community and we invite you to join us in giving back to them. Covid-19 has disrupted business for most vendors, so when you purchase a “Paw-liday” Gift & Fun Guide, you can celebrate knowing that, not only are you saving animals, you are supporting our community!
Inside each “Paw-liday” Gift & Fun Guide you will find valuable coupons to businesses you know as well as some you need to know. You will have opportunities to purchase experiences such as tastings and tours. In addition, you will see information about auction items that you can bid on. An auction item could be anything from an extravagant dinner for you and 7-9 of your closest friends to a long weekend vacation at a relaxing location. All items have been donated to help save the lives of animals in need.
We encourage you to purchase a catalog for yourself and/or as a unique gift that won’t be found anywhere else. Together we can raise money to support animals and help our community bounce back.
The “Paw-liday” Gift and Fun Guide will be available in October 2020!
