Enjoy Pinot Gris At the Peak For the Love Of Pets
A Lake Country winery is continuing the legacy of a major donor to the SPCA with a fundraiser for the entire month of November. O'Rourke's Peak Cellars chose the SPCA as its charity beneficiary after owner Dennis O'Rourke purchased the property of Bill Van Tassel, who left his entire $2-million estate to be split between the Vernon and Kelowna SPCA branches.
O'Rourke knew Van Tassel, as he had previously worked with him at Predator Ridge, and purchased his homestead to support the donation. The O’Rourkes are continuing Van Tassel's legacy by launching an annual SPCA fundraiser. For the month of November, the winery is donating $2 from every bottle of pinot gris purchased to the Vernon and Kelowna SPCA shelters.
Customers are also invited to bring their pets, taste complementary pinot gris, and post a photo on social media for a chance to win a weekly dinner for two.
We had the great pleasure of chatting with Peak Cellars GM Heather Courtney about this super 'fun' fundraiser for our furry friends:
