Tickets are $25/person and that will include at least 5 cheeses and 2 wines. The cheeses and educational presentation will be provided by Murray's Cheese, the legendary New York cheesemonger that is now opening locations in metro Atlanta Kroger stores.
New Deal! Buy 4 tickets in advance and receive a free bottle of Wolf Mountain Vineyards Plenitude or Instinct!
About Atlanta Underdog Initiative
A.UD.I. is licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture as an animal rescue. A.UD.I. mainly rescues pit bull and Mastiff type dogs. A.UD.I. is not yet a 501(c)3 non-profit as recognized by the IRS. The funds raised from this event will be used to apply for non-profit status so A.UD.I. can receive tax-deductible donations and help more animals and their families. A.UD.I. is currently financed by non tax-deductible personal contributions from its officers and their family and friends, as well as adoption fees.
