2019 Whiskers Wine & Dine Fundraising Gala
The Northwest Spay and Neuter Center will host their 2019 Whiskers Wine & Dine gala, which will be held Saturday, March 9th at the McGavick Conference Center on the Clover Park Technical College campus. The Northwest Spay and Neuter Center is located in Tacoma and serves dogs and cats throughout the South Sound. The organization provides high-quality, low-cost spay and neuter services. To accommodate those with limited transportation, they offer a shuttle service to provide easy and affordable access. Their 2018 event raised nearly $150,000 to help offset the cost for spay and neuter services for our Pierce County pets, preventing overpopulation and minimizing animal euthanasia. This year’s fundraising goal has been set at $250,000, and event planning efforts have been expanded significantly. Whiskers Wine & Dine’s new brand and targeted marketing approach takes the event to a new level. The event website offers easy access to tickets, and sponsorships, as well as information on the event’s generous sponsors. Comcast, Express Employment Professionals, Laura Fox with Kidder Mathews, Physicians Compliance Connection, Redfin and HomeAdvisor have already secured their sponsorship for the 2019 event. The event is actively seeking a variety of donations for the live and silent auctions. Past items have ranged from vacation packages to spa baskets. The event itself will include wine and beer tastings, curated luxury auction items, a plated gourmet meal, and interactive activities for every price point.
