“Land of the Free, because of the Brave”


This past Sunday, Dove’s Committee Against Domestic Violence hosted a fundraiser at Long Creek Vineyards.  With a record breaking temperature of 95 degrees, and a “feels like” temperature of over 100 degrees, the turnout wasn’t what we had hoped for.  Having been there personally, I completely understand why some might have chosen to position themselves next to a pool or on a boat if they did get out and brave the heat! 

Despite the scorching weather, it was a great event.  “BAM” provided music for the afternoon and Secret Recipes offered delicious food.  The staff of Long Creek Vineyards provided a variety of ways to stay hydrated and they were so great to work with.  Their property is beautiful and they had plenty of seating under a big shaded tent. 

CADV (Committee Against Domestic Violence) did a wonderful job putting this fundraiser together and I enjoyed all the Independence Day décor.  THANK YOU to them and THANK YOU to those who attended!  If Dove has another fundraiser at Long Creek Vineyards, hopefully the weather will be a bit cooler and more people can come out and enjoy a wonderful afternoon at the vineyard and support Dove simultaneously.

We hope that you all had a safe and happy Independence Day.  God Bless America!
