    Phoenix, AZ – June 16, 2016 – Gabriel’s Angels, the only organization in Arizona that delivers healing pet therapy to abused, neglected and at-risk children, is excited to announce their six annual “Salud! 2016 Signature Wine Dinner” event on Friday, October 7, from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Montelucia Resort & Spa. 

    Salud! 2016 features a wine reception, food from Michael Cairns, executive chef at the Montelucia Resort & Spa, live musical entertainment, a Live Auction lead by renown auctioneer Letitia Frye, and Gabriel’s Angels Pet Therapy Teams greeting attendees. Individuals at the event will have an opportunity to take part in a unique raffle known as “Lucky Leashes” by purchasing a red leash, with a variety of prizes available to win. Proceeds from Salud! help Gabriel’s Angels continue their work with at-risk children in the greater Phoenix community.

    The Salud! 2016 Chair is Sarah Held. She was recently nominated for the 2016 Woman of the Year for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, where she was honored to take 3rd place at the Grand Finale. By day, Sarah is a Realtor with HomeSmart Elite Group and by night, she moonlights as a pitching coach for girl’s fastpitch softball. Sarah’s passion for people and networking only can be outdone by her passion for her yellow lab, Napa. Growing up her entire life with a dog by her side she knows more than anyone the value of a dog’s unconditional love and the comfort they bring you.

    “Salud! 2016 will be a fantastic evening. It promises to be fun and unique,” said Pam Gaber, Gabriel’s Angels CEO and Founder. “Salud! is an evening of wine, delicious food, wonderful company and a chance to learn more about the great work of our organization. We invite you to join us and support the healing power of therapy dogs in the lives of our community’s most vulnerable children.”

    Salud! 2016 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. Individual tickets to Salud! 2016 are $300. Sponsorship packages are available. To purchase tickets or inquire about sponsorship, visit or call 602-266-0875. Paw friendly cocktail attire.
