Join us on Friday, May 2nd from 6:00-9:00pm for the 10th annual "Hair of the Dog," a benefit Art Show and Wine & Beer tasting for the MSPCA at Nevins Farm.

We'll be sampling over 50 wines and beers from around the world, so you'll be guaranteed to find a favorite!  With tasty tidbits from Whole Foods Market Catering in Andover, and dozens of artists from Merrimack Valley showcasing their work, the evening is a "can't miss" event. 

The show and tasting will be held at the Essex Art Center, 56 Island Street, Lawrence, MA 01840.

100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the animals and programs of Nevins Farm. Additionally 10% of all wine & beer and art sales will also be donated.

Preview some of the stunning images, which will be on display at the event, of recent animals whose lives have been forever impacted by this fund, photographed by the very talented Kaylee Greer of Dog Breath Photography.
