Spend a summer’s eve sipping wine at beautiful Bucks Valley Winery and Vineyards to benefit Susquehanna Service Dogs! Bucks Valley Winery and Vineyards has labeled a red wine just for SSD, called “Independence Unleashed.” A portion of all sales of these specially labeled bottles will be donated to SSD!

Tickets cost $20 per person or $35 per couple. Your ticket includes a sample of “Independence Unleashed” and an SSD magnet. The first 300 people to buy tickets will receive an SSD wine glass. You can purchase tickets online until 5 p.m. on August 2. Tickets will also be available at the door.

In addition to the debut of “Independence Unleashed,” the event includes appetizers, music by Cool D and the Rhythm Bag, and a silent auction, featuring items such as a helmet signed by the 2017 Penn State football team.

Additional food will be available for purchase within the winery. Food trucks will be available outside, including Mel’s Rock N’ BBQ and BootLLeg Creamery.
