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.
