Secco Gives Back: RACC

Secco Gives Back: RACC

As all of you know, we here at Secco are crazy dog and cat people. And it's important to us to help the people that help the animals. We are pleased to announce July’s charitable partner is Richmond Animal Care and Control. On Wednesday, July 17th, 15% of sales will go to them and help fund their efforts to care for RVA's neediest critters. Please join us!

"RACC was established as the first city pound June 5, 1902 and since then it has served as the only open admission public shelter in the City of Richmond. We provide humane care for more than 3,000 stray, injured, abused and relinquished pets a year that require immediate care. As an open admission shelter, RACC takes in every animal in need in the City of Richmond, including animals that are severely injured or behaviorally unsound. We believe that every life is worth trying to save and we are committed to putting work behind those words."

American Cheese & Italian Wine Seminar

American Cheese & Italian Wine Seminar

We are once again thrilled to welcome back our OM (Original Monger) Sara Adduci for a special seminar! The American Cheese Society will be descending on RVA for their annual conference at the end of the month and we wanted to join the party, so we’re doing a class focusing on some of the most exciting farmstead cheeses coming out of the States right now, as paired with Italian wines selected by owner/wine director Julia Battaglini. There will be ample discussion of history and evolution of American cheesemaking, wine pairing tips, and a fair amount of Italian-American smack talk :)

Tickets are $50 per person inclusive and are available HERE. Please join us!
