On a beautiful and balmy Friday night, in May, many supporters and friends of Northfield Vineyards and Friends of White County Animals enjoyed a delicious Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon meal prepared by Captain Frank Lupac, his wife, Cindy, and his son, Josh, under the new pavilion, at Northfield Vineyards. The salmon was smoked to perfection and served with delicious sides, desserts, lemonade, and other refreshments. The guests were also entertained by music from the talented Jenna Judd, of Sparta, while they enjoyed lots of fun and fellowship.
The proceeds from the salmon dinner were then donated by Northfield Vineyards to benefit the Friends of White County Animals and their missions within White County.
Marty Luna, of Northfield Vineyards, stated, “We just love Friends of White County Animals as we are all animal lovers. Mark [Ray] and I don’t have kids of our own, so our animals are our babies. Contributing to a worthy cause like FWCA ensures that many animals are getting fed and cared for and can have happy lives with caring families. Current winery, residents Daisy and Bo, are both rescues as well as sweet Sammy was, and we feel it’s important to give animals the love and attention they so richly deserve. Their love is unconditional. I also want to thank Frank Lupac, his wife, Cindy, and his son, Josh, for donating the salmon used for the dinner and for cooking it up for such an awesome, delicious meal. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
Sharon Langford, president of Friends of White County Animals, expressed her sentiments saying, “We are so grateful to Northfield Vineyards for this gift and their continuing support to help animals. Several people commented at this event that this was the best salmon they had ever eaten.”
Another salmon dinner planning is in the works for this fall. Please make plans to attend. The details for the next dinner will be announced at a later date.
