A wine tasting to benefit the Tiffany Dlesk Spay Neuter Clinic and the Marshall County Animal Rescue League will be held on Thursday, August 7 at the Artisan Center at River City in Downtown Wheeling.
For $20, guests will be able to sample six ones and enjoy a variety of hors d'oeuvres from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. There are also baskets for raffle and a 50/50 raffle at the fourth annual event.
Last year, the event raised $16,000, which goes directly to the animals. Organizer Janie Husek wants to surpass that number this year. "We divided that up between the Tiffany Dlesk Spay Clinic and then we used for our rescue league, which helps take care of the cats, because the county is in charge of the dogs and there was a void for the cats so we had to step in and we formed this league," she said.
7News anchor Rachael Dierkes will be serving as a celebrity pourer at the event.
Tickets can be purchased at the Play and Stay Pet Camps in Wheeling and St. Clairsville, River City Restaurant, River City, Casa di Vino, Nini's Treasures and the Happy Tails Pet Salon. They can also be purchased at the door the night of the event.
