350 West 11th Street, Bloomington, IN
Upland has been a friend to the Exotic Feline Rescue Center for several years, providing support by donating their great beer to the Auction and by hosting an annual EFRC fundraiser at their restaurant in Bloomington. Upland was founded in 1997 and today, with their products in all 92 Indiana counties, is proud to call itself Indiana's largest microbrewery. Upland is also a socially conscious business that contributes to causes important to them; we are delighted that EFRC is one of those causes.
The Tap Room is housed in the old Graphic Impressions printing plant and provides an airy, open environment where great food, great beer, and great friends come together in the context of a working brewery. There is also a seasonal outdoor dining-and-music biergarten.
Visit Upland's Tasting Room in Indy! It's on the southwest corner of College Ave. and 49th Street and open Sun-Thurs 4pm-10pm and Fri-Sat 12pm-12am. Stop in for a sampler flight of beer, coffee, snacks or to buy (or refill) a growler. 317-602-3931.
This is a group of people who know how to throw a party! Visit and you'll see what we mean!

We welcome Oliver Winery to the 2013 Saving the Big Cats Charity Auction and hope our partnership will extend for many years. We know you will enjoy their fine wines, and we are so grateful for their donation. Family owned and operated for more than 30 years, Oliver Winery makes and sells award winning wines including Shiraz, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Beanblossom, Blackberry, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Since 1972 Oliver wines have reflected the essence of the fruit from which they are made. Bright flavors and balance are the hallmarks of Oliver Wine. Tastings are available daily and tours may be taken Friday through Sunday.rwinery.com12-876-5800
Oliver Winery started in the 1960's as a hobby in the basement of Indiana University law professor William Oliver. His enthusiasm for making wine led him to establish a vineyard northwest of Bloomington. Soon the flourishing vines produced grapes far in excess of his needs as a hobby winemaker, and he began plans to open a commercial winery.
w.oliverwinery.com12-876-5800ToTToday, under the leadership of Professor Oliver's son, Bill, joined by general manager Kathleen Oliver, Oliver Winery has distribution in 14 states. We hope you will get to know these good people and their wines at the 2013 Auction and will put Oliver Wines on your shopping list soon.

Indulge in a Cause. Working cooperatively with their chocolate suppliers, Endangered Species fulfills a vital part of the company’s mission of empowering individuals to create solutions that sustain species, habitat and humanity. Cacao used to create their Natural and Organic chocolate products is grown on farm cooperatives that foster responsible labor practices, community enrichment and sustainable farming. Their ethical trade criteria ensure fair wages for cacao farmers. No slave labor is used in the growing and harvesting of cacao used in their chocolate.
We are so happy that Endangered Species considers EFRC a friend; they will provide one of their delicious Chocolate Bars for each Auction guest.
