Heartland Humane Society has geared up for the 2011 Wine and Whiskers to be held Saturday, Nov. 5, at Hillcrest Country Club in Yankton from 6 to 10 p.m.
The event will feature 47 auction packages to include trips to Hawaii, Florida and the Black Hills and wonderful local items such as a hot air balloon ride, spa packages, and more. The event also features wine and beer tasting, hors d'oeuvres, and live music.
"We are excited about the auction donations we've received," said Kerry Schmidt, executive director at Heartland Humane Society. "Tickets are selling fast and we expect to sell out before Nov. 5."
Tickets are $50 per person and may be purchased by contacting the Heartland Humane Society at 605-664-4244, any Heartland Humane Society board member or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event has already raised over $10,000 in sponsorships including gifts from Feimer Construction, JMMWH, Modern Woodman, Mary Mitchell, Peshong's, Plains All American, and Coffee Cup.
"Wine and Whiskers will ensure our animals will receive the best care in 2012." Schmidt said. "We hope if you have a love for pets that you will consider joining us or making a donation towards our largest fundraiser of the year."
Donations can be mailed to PO Box 585, Yankton, SD 57078.
