2nd Annual Sipping For Sanctuary

Join Us For a Fun-Filled Night of Fundraising

August 13, 2019

We’re just three weeks away from our second annual Sipping for Sanctuary craft beer/wine-tasting fundraiser! This year, it will be held September 5, from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM, at the historic Apollo on Emma in Springdale, Arkansas.

Northwest Arkansas is known for its rich artistic scene and unique atmosphere; it’s no wonder those attributes even translate to the region’s spirits and brews! Local vendors will be offering a variety of award-winning wine and beer for guests to sample in the atmosphere of the beautiful Apollo On Emma, which was once the Apollo Theater. The venue has been remodeled in a “classical 1940’s art deco appeal,” complete with marble and cherry wood accents, crystal chandeliers, and an air of art and elegance.

Guests can sip as the song stylings of local musician, Kurt Hunter, wafts through the air, mingling with the aroma of delectable gourmet food crafted by Catered Creations. Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid on up to 100 silent auction items, including Refuge lodging, stays at regional hotels and bed-and-breakfasts, product/service baskets, paw paintings created by TCWR’s animal residents, and local art. In addition, this event serves as a wonderful opportunity to mingle with fellow animal-lovers and conservationists who share a passion for the Refuge and making the world a better place for all creatures, two-legged and four-legged, alike.

Cocktail attire is suggested, and animal-print is encouraged! Because we support the ethical treatment of animals, we ask that guests do not wear actual animal products.

Tickets are on sale now for $55, but will be $65 day-of. Admission includes two complimentary drink tickets (3 if you are a member) that can be redeemed at any of our craft beer/wine vendors at the event. Tickets can be purchased at

Those who belong to a Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge membership tier get one complimentary admission ticket. If this applies to you, please email or call 479-253-5841 ext. 5 to confirm your membership and attendance. If you are interested in becoming a member, please visit

We hope you will join us Thursday, September 5, for a night of Sipping for Sanctuary! All proceeds support TCWR, and we encourage you to bring a friend to introduce to our mission.
