Raffle and Prizes

You can purchase raffle tickets and win big at Canines Uncorked. Stay tuned for a list of the amazing items we will have in the raffle.

We will also have a wine pull. This fun activity gives each participant the opportunity to take home an amazing Ashton Creek Vineyard bottled wine or one of many wine-related gifts at Canines Uncorked.  A person buys a numbered token and wins the corresponding bottle of wine, and then pulls off the wrapping to see what kind of bottle they won. You have the chance to win a bottle of wine valued higher, but each participant purchases a bottle for a fixed amount (i.e. $20).

In order to make the wine pull successful, your help is needed. We need bottles of wine! For only $25, past adopters and CARE supporters may sponsor a bottle of wine in honor of, or in memory of, your adopted dog. Learn how to participate
