It’s the Ultimate CARE-age Ride

Gil and his staff at The Farm do more than rescue animals. They shower their animals with love and give them new leases on life. It’s a joy for all involved that doing so also means being a part of your memories and celebrations. And it’s a joy for you knowing that some of the proceeds from your night out go back to helping this heartfelt organization.

It’s often said the way to heart is through the stomach, so this sentimental Village saunter also includes a half-pound of freshly dipped chocolate-covered strawberries from Chocolate Covered Wagon. Ummm… yes! Please!

It goes without saying, Chocolate Covered Wagon knows chocolate. But they also know gift baskets, caramel apples, fudge, world famous taffy, and so much more. It's a must as you help Cupid prepare for amor.

GIDDY UP! YOUR CARRIAGE AWAITS (but not for long)
