The Peoria Humane Society decided to try something new to celebrate Spay Day on February 24, 2015.  This was the first year of Wine and Whiskers, a fundraiser featuring drinks and hors d’ oeuvres, and plenty of opportunity to raise money for the animals. 


The night’s activities included a silent auction, wine raffle, doghouse donation booth, Jazz music by the Billy Cook Trio, and a visit from the Special Pals Pet Therapy Dogs.  Beer and wine was served and accompanied by a fabulous spread of hors d oeuvres.


The event was well received by everyone who attended.  In total the event brought in almost $15,000!  The Peoria Humane Society was very pleased with how the evening played out and we look forward to this becoming a yearly fundraiser.
