Blessing of the Animals at St. Francis Winery St. Francis Winery

Sunday October 1st - 2:00pm

St. Francis Winery welcomes your critters to its annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2-5 p.m.

Take part in this Sonoma Valley tradition by bringing your best furry friend to the winery to be blessed and spend the afternoon helping raise money for the Sonoma Humane Society.

Father Ron Serban of Holy Spirit Church in Santa Rosa will be on hand to administer the blessings.

There will be raffle prizes and silent auction items donated by local businesses. This year the goal is to raise over $6,500 for this great cause. Proceeds from the raffle, silent auction, wine by the glass and the Winery Dog of the Year contest will be donated to Humane Society.

St. Francis Winery is located at 100 Pythian Road. For more information, go to
