Well, tickle me whiskers

It’s a “come-as-you-are” gala, but it’s also a come-wherever-you-are event. The Wine & Whiskers Gala is offering both an in-person ticket and a virtual attendance ticket for its event from 6–8:30 p.m. Friday that benefits Roice-Hurst Humane Society.

The socially-distanced, in-person option will feature wine and heavy appetizers at Two Rivers Winery, 2087 Broadway, where there also will be adoptable dogs and cats to meet.

The virtual option includes a bottle of Two Rivers Winery delivered to you.

Both options will offer access to a pet-themed online silent auction.

Tickets for either option cost $45 and can be purchased through

Tickets cost $16 per household and the films can be watched from Friday through Aug. 7 and can be purchased at

In addition to the film festival, the society will have an online auction with bidding through Aug. 7. The auction will feature artwork, restaurant gift certificates, jewelry, self care and adventure packages, sporting gear, pet gear and more.
