Charity Partner

We are excited to announce the local charity partner for this event is Save A Mom Rescue!!

Save a Mom (SAM) Pregnant Dog Rescue was started in October 2005 when our founder, Denise Jones, received a call from a local vet about a pregnant dog. She was found running in the park, having suffered horrible abuse, and not trusting anybody. The dog was named Sammie.

Save a Mom is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill rescue organization has provided pounds and shelters a safe place to send pregnant dogs, newly whelped litters, and orphaned pups. We specialize in helping momma dogs who require longer, more exhaustive care that most pounds and not all rescue shelters can meet.

Our priority is to save dogs from danger and euthanasia, ensure their well-being, and find them good homes. We are not breed-specific, and we do not pick or choose the dogs we rescue. As long as we have the needed space and funds, we rescue all dogs in need.

Can I Participate Virtually?

Absolutely!  We have been getting many inquiries about virtual participation and have integrated a virtual option into our regular registration.

Please feel free to register through the regular registration link above and you can either: 

1) Pick up packet during packet pickup or on the morning of the race, but run on your own (hint:  wine ticket is still good if you use this strategy)

2) Contact us at any time to switch to the Haunted Wine Run Virtual Race and we'll ship your packet (There will be a $10.00 shipping and handling charge per person)

Also, if you intend on running, but later change your mind and would like to do either of these options, that's ok too!  If you are definitely going to have us ship your packet and run virtually though, we do recommend you follow the instructions below:

1). Go to and log into your account.

2). Click on "Manage Registration" next to this race.

3). On the next page click on transfer to another race and choose the Haunted Wine Run Virtual Race.
