The League for Animal Welfare has announced that local legends Nick and Nina Clooney will be celebrity hosts at this year’s Wine & Whiskers wine tasting and auction, to be held on Saturday, Oct. 12. The Clooneys will be on hand enjoying the festivities and mingling with event guests for a worthy cause: bettering the lives of cats and dogs in need in our community.
David Kennard, executive director of the League, noted that the Wine & Whiskers event “not only provides a great deal of support for our animals, it also promotes the tireless work of the League for Animal Welfare throughout the tri-state.” As the tri-state’s largest and longest-established no-kill animal shelter, the League works to place hundreds of homeless pets with loving homes each year, and also leads the way in spay and neuter efforts to address pet overpopulation problems in the region.
This year’s event will be held on from 7-11 pm at The Center (115 East 5th St). Celebrity Auctioneer Steve McGowan will lead the bidding on live auction items, and a wide array of silent auction items also will be up for bid, including “paws-atively” unique paintings done by some of the League’s most talented four-legged artists.
In addition to fine wines, a wide selection of craft beers and rare bourbons also will be served.
Early Bird Registration is just $75 until October 1st, 2013. After that date, tickets will cost $90.
Registration is available online here or by calling (513) 735-2299.
