Wine & Whiskers!  Sounds like a good time to us!

The 4th Annual Wine & Whiskers Benefit and Auction will be held at the Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor on Tuesday, July 25th, beginning at 6PM.  It all happens under a tent overlooking the ocean, and includes hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, dessert, and once again live music by the rockabilly band, The Crown Vics.  So, make sure to wear your dancin' shoes!

Some of the auction items include a whimsical harbor sea turtle sculpture by local artist Dan Falt, a Piaggio scooter, a week’s stay in a Bali villa, jewelry designed by Lisa Hall; and a cocktail party in your home with food prepared by Blue Hill caterer Diane Bianco and music by Emmy-winning musician Paul Sullivan.

Make a bid on this cool turtle!
