2016 “Wine & Whiskers” Fundraising Wrap-Up
Despite the last-minute change in the date, over 110 guests attended our annual fundraiser and took part in many activities to support the Sanctuary. We had a long line of supporters waiting to come in before the doors opened up at 6pm. The venue was ideal for the event, with plenty of room to move around and enjoy the smorgasbord of appetizers, different pasta dishes, salad, rolls and yummy desserts. Forty-nine baskets filled with incredible items donated by area businesses and private donors were raffled off and 10 door prize tickets were drawn during the evening. A silent auction offering estate planning documents raised additional money. Other activities included three 50/50 $1.00 raffle sideboards and “The Biggest Loser” Drawing” where people can put in their losing sideboard tickets along with another $1.00 for one last 50/50 drawing at the end of the night. A “Cat-tivity” table provided photo ops to snap selfies in cat masks & other dress-up gear. Free Mandala cat drawings were available to color at the event or take home.
