Happy Easter weekend and welcome to spring! I have taken on a crazy project and I think it is time to go truly public with it. Several friends from ACC and I, all of whom are not runners, have decided to train with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to run a full marathon in June! We have been working hard and will run 23 miles this week! We are doing this to improve our own health, but more importantly to raise money for this wonderful society. The money we raise will help fund cancer research which will benefit people, AND ANIMALS, with all kinds of cancer. It also goes to patient support programs. As a lymphoma survivor myself, I can tell you I would not be alive today without organizations such as this!

To help us raise money, Animal Care Clinic is having an Open House, Silent Auction and Wine Tasting Gala on Sunday April 6, from 2-6pm. This is your opportunity to get a full tour of our hospital, meet our staff and see displays showing how everything works at ACC. Along the way you will have opportunities to taste wines from Wildhorse, Baileyana, Per Bacco, Niner, Salisbury and other vineyards. Some wonderful items we be available in our silent auction. We are asking for a $25 donation (unless you already have or would like to donate more!) and all proceeds go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. If you cannot make it to the event and want to support us, give us a call for more information. Thank you!!
