Wood County Humane Society Wine & Cheese Benefit Set For May 21

The "swingin’ and swanky" 2010 Wood County Humane Society Wine & Cheese Benefit will be held 7:00 to10:30 PM on Friday, May 21. The event will be held at beautiful Nazareth Hall on the Maumee River located at the intersection of Route 65 and Weston Road. There will be live and silent auctions of great items (with auctioneer Jerry Anderson). Music will be provided by The Guytones Jazz Quartet and DJ Paul Spoerl. A DVD by BGSU design students will also be presented. There will be an assortment of hors d'oeuvres and numerous wines (from hearty Cab to sweet Moscato) to sample.

Tickets are $65 per person or $120 per couple and are available online. Order Tickets Online.  UPDATE: If you order before May 15, the earlybird cost is $55 and $110. A portion of your ticket is tax-deductable. Cocktail attire is appropriate. For additional information call (419) 378-1178 or e-mail

Items donated for the silent auction by WCHS friends and area businesses are cumulatively valued at more than $10,000, and items will be accepted through May 14th. These include fabulous items such as a timeshare vacation, a Kalahari Resort Package, Golf Passes, Vera Bradley items, sports memorabilia, Coach bags, hand crafted jewelry and art, restaurant, shop and salon certificates from area merchants and many more items for the entire family (including pets).

The Wood County Humane Society receives no government funding, and so relies on the donations of individuals like you to carry on its important work. WCHS is a private, non-profit, no-kill animal shelter. Its mission is to provide the best quality care for abused, homeless, neglected and abandoned animals in the community. Their Humane Agent responds to reports of cruelty throughout Wood County. Dedicated staff and volunteers also provide public assistance, information and assistance with low-cost spay/neuter programs and community education.
