Bark & Wine
The seventh annual Bark and Wine event benefiting the Shelby Humane Society will be July 23 at Greystone Country Club.
The informal event, hosted by the Shelby Humane Society’s board of directors, will include dinner, silent and live auction items, services and trips donated by the Humane Society’s supporters.
The event will kick off at 6 p.m. with complimentary wine and beer selections as well as a silent auction. At 7 p.m., guests have a strolling dinner including carving and pasta stations. The night’s program and live auction, hosted by Granger Thagard, will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $150 per person and are limited to 140 reservations. Guests are asked to RSVP by July 1. Sponsorship opportunities are available at two levels including platinum, which includes seating for eight at $5,000 and gold, which includes seating for eight at $2,500. Event seating is available for $1,200 and includes seating for six.
The night’s attire will be “dressy casual,” according to the invitation. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Shelby Humane Society, the only independent open-admission animal shelter in the county, according to its website.
As part of its mission, the Shelby Humane Society cares for homeless, abused, neglected and abandoned animals. It also works to educate the community on the responsibility of animal ownership and protection.
The shelter cares for about 5,000 animals each year. The Shelby Humane Society’s programs and services include local adoptions, transports to northern states and “quick fix” spay and neuter programs performed to reduce overpopulation.
The Shelby Humane Society is at 381 McDow Road in Columbiana. For more information, visit shelbyhumane.org. The Greystone Country Club is at 1100 Greystone Drive in Birmingham.
