afpop East Algarve organised a Wine Tasting & Dinner at Octant Vila Monte on the 17th November and raised €1835 for StreetLife - the local Animal Sterilisation Programme.
The evening was truly magical with 100 guests having a great time tasting wines and enjoying a fabulous meal prepared by the hotel chefs.
Thanks go to all of the afpop EA members and StreetLife supporters who attended the evening. The Vila Monte team were exceptional. Excellent service from the moment the first glass of fizz was poured to the last glass of red wine. The atmosphere in the Laranjal restaurant was buzzing…. nothing to do with the wine flowing J.
Quinta do Escudial sponsored the wines for the evening. Five wines were tasted plus a welcome glass of Espumante. The wines were presented by Paulo Primaz and Filipe Morais.
Everyone's generosity was overwhelming and StreetLife thanks everyone involved in the evening for helping to make a difference to the lives of so many local dogs.
Thanks must also go to Octant Vila Monte donating an overnight stay, restaurants Tribulum, Barbacoa and Bamboo for donating vouchers, plus Pine Trees Riding Stables. All the guests arrived with “gifts” to make up hampers – everyone’s generosity was overwhelming.
StreetLife is a non-profit association which supports low-income families with insufficient funds and helps animal shelters to sterilise their dogs, reducing the number of unwanted puppies & strays in the East Algarve. StreetLife has currently authorised the sterilisation of 760+ local dogs.
