Kick up your heels, make a bid and support our furry friends!

The 5th Annual Wine & Whiskers event to support the SPCA of Hancock County will happen on Tuesday night, July 24th, at the Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor.  This is the biggest fund raising event of the year that benefits the non-profit no-kill pet shelter on the Bar Harbor Road in Trenton!

This year's festivities will take place under the big top on the lawn of the Asticou Inn overlooking beautiful Northeast Harbor!  Dance the night away with The Blake Rosso Band, the same band that just received great reviews by playing the "Taste Of Ellsworth" event recently!

This event will feature both a silent and live auction hosted by Andrew Simon of the Barn Arts Collective serving as the auctioneer.  Some of the items up for bid this year include a week long stay at an ocean view apartment on the French Riviera, a pasta-making lesson in your home by Blue Hill chef and caterer Diana Bianco, a whimsical seal sculpture by local artist Dan Falt, Dooney & Bourke handbags, and jewelry designed by Lisa Hall.

Your ticket also includes yummy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar,  and dessert!

This is such a fun event that supports an amazing and important cause,” said Wine & Whiskers chairperson Mary Anne Griffin in a recent press release. “The SPCA receives no municipal, state or federal funding and the majority of funds we need to keep the doors of our shelter open come from Wine & Whiskers.”
