Maggie Malick Wines Caves 2018 Lab Fest Weekend raised nearly $1,100 to support the Lab Rescue of the Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac , a volunteer-run nonprofit that saves about 1,000 Labrador retrievers each year.
During LabFest, dogs can romp, run and swim in ponds on the 215-acre estate, while their owners and other visitors enjoy award-winning wines, picnic lunches and expansive vineyard views. The donation was made by dedicating a portion of the weekend’s sales to the rescue group.
Based in Annandale, LRCP rescues, fosters and places homeless, abused, and/or abandoned Labrador retrievers in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and North Carolina.
Lab Fest is one of several dog-related events held at the Wine Caves every year. The estate also is a venue for Chesapeake Dock Dog water competitions throughout the summer months. Go to maggiemalickwinecaves.com/dog-events.html, for more information.
