“With the success of last year’s event, we wanted to continue Salud! – our Wine Dinner Event, so our donors and volunteers, and hopefully new community members, can share in this fun and unique evening, unlike any other in the Valley,” said Pam Gaber, Gabriel’s Angels CEO and founder. “Salud! is an evening of wine tasting, delicious food, wonderful company and a chance to learn more about the great work of our organization. We choose the name Salud! because it means “good health” or “be well” in Spanish and that’s the outcome we want for all of Gabriel’s Angels children is to have good health and be well.”
The Unleash the Love campaign is designed to show Gabriel’s Angels’ commitment to offer continued Pet Therapy for children in our community through the love of a therapy dog.
