Spend a summer evening sipping wine and enjoying food and live music at A Perfect Pairing, an event held at the Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey on June 23 from 4 pm to 8 pm to benefit Susquehanna Service Dogs.

Enjoy an evening of fine wine, food, and music at the beautiful Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey to benefit Susquehanna Service Dogs (SSD). A Perfect Pairing will be held on June 23 from 4 pm to 8 pm.

The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey has specially labeled two wines for SSD, called “Perfect Match,” and “Man’s Best Blend.” A portion of the proceeds from these two wines, plus all take away bottle sales during the event, will be donated to SSD.

In addition to these specially labeled wines, A Perfect Pairing includes live music by Itsy and Im, a silent auction, a vacation getaway raffle, and food trucks, including Dogongooddogs, Lancaster Cupcake, Mel’s Rock N’ BBQ, FireBox Street Grill, Pretzel Spot Café, SAM and JO Gyros, Bake My Day Café, and Dam Good Snacks. Karn’s Foods will offer samples of various cheeses.

The silent auction includes a variety of items, such as signed Penn State football helmets, jewelry, spa packages, other sports memorabilia, restaurant gift cards, and more.

Guests will also have the opportunity to meet some of SSD’s youngest service dogs in training and help with their socialization.

Tickets cost $20 per person or $35 per couple in advance and will also be available at the door for $30 per person or $50 per couple. Each ticket includes a wine glass and a tasting of three wines. Tickets can be purchased online

Susquehanna Service Dogs raises, trains, and places service dogs to support children and adults with physical and psychiatric disabilities, such as autism, post-traumatic stress disorder, spinal cord injuries, polio, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, arthritis, stroke, seizure disorder, hearing loss, and other similar disabilities. SSD also trains service dogs for military veterans and facilities such as schools, courthouses, nursing homes, mental health facilities, and occupational therapy. While promoting maximum independence, service dogs from Susquehanna Services Dogs assist their human partners to pursue everyday lives, including meaningful employment, education, and community life.
