On Saturday, Gordon's Grocery, at 101 Cypress St. in Hagerstown, will hold a wine tasting from 1 to 4 p.m. to benefit the Humane Society of Washington County.
Attendees are asked to bring pet items, such as blankets, toys, kitty litter and food for the animals housed at the shelter.
The event will be hosted by John Gordon.
"We have wanted to do something for a long time," Gordon said. "We discussed this with Shawn Clopper of Monument Fine Wines and this seemed to be a great idea."
"We are trying to have a nice variety of wines at different price points for folks to try," said Shawn Clopper of Monument Fine Wines. "John and I are really looking forward to this. We hope it will help the shelter during these financially troubling times."
The humane society is at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown. Call 301-733-2060 or go to www.hswcmd.org for information on animal-related issues, directions to the shelter and information about programs and services.
