Humane Society of Vilas County hosts 9th annual wine tasting benefit SundaySubmitted: 04/19/2015
CONOVER - A Northwoods community came together for the ninth annual wine tasting benefit to raise money for the Humane Society of Vilas County on Sunday.


Tickets for the event, held at Lanny's Fireside in Conover, sold out three weeks ago.

"We have three different tables set up with different kinds of wines, and then all of the food is paired with the wine, and they just roam around, help themselves, catch up with old friends, make new friends," says Humane Society of Vilas County board member Pam Ragan.

The humane society usually raises between $8,000 and $10,000 dollars from the event. The group expected about 100 people would attend the event.

Ragan says fundraisers such as this one are very important to the humane society.

"It's so important to help all the animals that come through, and we've had a lot of special-need cases this past year and this year, so it's tremendously important."
