Announcing the 6th Annual Wine & Whiskers Carnival!

Announcing the 6th Annual Wine & Whiskers Carnival!

After only 5 years of growing our fabulous fundraiser - Wine & Whiskers Carnival - we have outgrown our venue!  The event has gained such popularity that we are now offering it for two evenings, both at the 4H Event Center in Ridgway, to make sure all our guests get a seat.

Thursday March 14th from 6-8 PM is the Opening Night Mixer and is geared toward those who mostly just want to see the fashion show.  Although there will be a small silent auction prior to the show the focus will be on the roof-raising show.  Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Saturday March 16th (5:30 pm - midnight) will remain the Gala Event: fun packed evening including the delectable chef samplers, well stocked silent auction, lively live auction, the famous fashion show, concluding with a dance party.  Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door.

Tickets are available at the Second Chance Thrift Shop in Ridgway, Buckskin Booksellers in Ouray, and Telluride Veterinary Clinic.  Call 626.2273 for event details.

Don't miss out on the most talked about event of the year!
