“Wet Your Whiskers” Wine Tasting and Cat Photo Contest to Benefit FUR

Feline Urgent Rescue of WNC (FUR) will host a unique event from 5:30-8:00pm on Saturday April 21 in the Daniel & Belle Fangmeyer Theatre at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre. HART is at 250 Pigeon Street, Waynesville.
There will be a wine tasting or beer choice with appetizer buffet and the culmination of FUR’s Cat Photo Contest. During the evening guests will vote on the entries in the contest.

“While sampling three featured wines from Harmon’s Den Bistro or a beer, people will be voting for their favorite feline photo from seven categories,” said Bonnie Smith, event chairperson. “We hope people will come to vote for their own photos or their friend’s submissions.”

For that evening only the Bistro will offer a 10% discount per case of the featured wines.

Entries of favorite cat photos are now being accepted in the following categories: Diva Cat, Funniest Cat, Cutest Cat, Laziest Cat, Cat-ti-tude, Cats & Friends and Best in Show. Registration forms and important information for contest submissions can be found at www.furofwnc.org. or at FUR’s resale store located in the Big Red Barn Trading Post at 79 Branner Avenue, Waynesville.

There is a $15 per photo registration fee. Registration deadline is Saturday, April 7.

First and second place ribbons will be awarded with prizes given to category first place winners and Best in Show.
Admission for the wine tasting is $35 per person and includes three tastings. Sponsorships are available for $125. Each sponsor will receive two admissions, business card display, event recognition and choice of two FUR shirts or four FUR wine glasses. New sponsors will be joining The Mountaineer newspaper, which is already a Corporate Sponsor for Wet Your Whiskers
