The 2016 Wine & Whiskers Tasting and Auction held on November 5 at the Kingsgate Marriott raised more than $65,000 for the League for Animal Welfare. Event proceeds give hope to the homeless animals in our no-kill animal shelter who are waiting to meet their forever family. Thank you to all of our sponsors for making the evening a success, including presenting sponsor Marilyn Scripps.
Guests enjoyed live music while sampling wines, craft beers and cocktails designed by Cincinnati mixologist, Molly Wellmann. Bidding was competitive for a wide variety of silent and live auction packages, including one-of-a-kind artwork created by canine and feline artists. Local 12’s Jen Dalton was on hand to lead the evening’s activities featuring a special guest appearance by Scooter the Neutered Cat!
After an eleven-year run, the League is discontinuing its annual Wine & Whiskers fundraiser. “We are so grateful for the support of our sponsors and guests over the years,” says League executive director Marilyn Goodrich. “We want to thank everyone who has given their time, talent and treasure to make this event successful.” A new family-friendly event will debut in 2017 in an effort to engage a wider audience. More details are coming soon!
