Attendees can “wet their whiskers” and feast with their eyes as they partake of classic Italian lasagna.
Accompanied by a chopped Italian salad, homemade bread, iced tea and an Italian bread pudding, the meal is offered for a $15 donation to the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter.
The “Wine and Whiskers” event will be held at the General’s Quarters (924 North Fillmore Street) from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 21.
"All proceeds from the fund-raiser will benefit the animals at the shelter," said Chef Luke Doehner.
The charity event will also include a wine tasting.
Owner of JR’s Wine and Spirits Rodney Manahan will be available to discuss the wines he has donated to be paired with the food.
Donated labels include a 2012 Montepulciano D’ Abruzzo, a Beringer White Zinfandel, a 2012 Beringer Pinot Grigio and a 2011 Jakob Demmer Auslese Riesling.
“These are all good table wines,” said Manahan. “We chose labels that were very diversified in order to appeal to a wide-range of individual palates. I think everyone will find something they enjoy among this selection.”
Those wishing to attend can R.S.V.P. by calling 662-286-3325.
"We look forward to 'Wine and Whiskers' and hope everyone will come out and share an evening with us," said Volunteer Coordinator Mary Schafer. "It's a great way to indulge while giving back."
