Break out your tie-dye and get ready to party… Wine & Whiskers is back!

Virtual Silent Auction: March 6th-13th

In-person premier auction gala: March 12th at CH2MHill Alumni Center

Wine & Whiskers has been Heartland’s premier fundraiser since its inception in 2004, raising over $1.2 million for animals and people who love them. This year’s event fundraising goal is $100k. These funds are vital to provide critical care for animals in need, adoption and lost and found services, the Pet Food Bank, and Safe Housing for animal companions of families in crisis. Get involved by attending this year’s event (with virtual or in person options), donating an auction item, or advertise your business with sponsorship opportunities.

Sponsors make this event possible. With options at three giving levels, you can show your love for the animals while promoting your company. Click here for details on the perks of Wine & Whiskers sponsorship.

Ready to sign up? You can do so online, or email our Development Director for help.

Fill out an online donation form here (paper copies are also available). Items can be dropped off between 11 am and 4 pm, 7 days a week. Want to donate an experience but don’t have gift certificates on hand? Our volunteers would be delighted to make one for you.

What items do best at our auction? Gift certificates for experiences, food, and excursions; wine, beer, and spirits; works by local artists; and one of a kind unique surprise items. Donations of smaller items will be combined to make gift baskets or included in packages. Have something to give, but unsure if it’s a fit for the auction or better for our eBay store? Give our Donation Director a buzz:

This year’s event will be held in person (pandemic-willing), with options for virtual participation! To protect our staff, volunteers, and guests, our in-person event will follow the venue’s rules and local guidelines for pandemic safety measures and vaccination requirements. Watch this space, tickets will be available beginning in December. In the meantime, start planning your costumes!
